    Could you at least give some context here? Where does it appear? What's the earliest you can find? Is there any evidence it is real?

    It didn't match any Google Book results, and when I search for the quote, all I get is this Yahoo Answers page:

    https://br.answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20101012150743AAe5yn8

    Of course the best anwers says they never heard of the quote either.

    One of the answerd said this:

    "Well, it's not George Washington. I've read just about everything he wrote and there's nothing mystical in his words. My first impression when I read this, is that it doesn't sound like Washington at all. The Illuminati were a Bavarian (German) group that hoped to take over the world. They had nothing to do with the Masons or with America's Founders. This is just another one of those fake statements that usually spring up on conspiracy websites."

    I guess it's safe to say the quote never existed.

    Looks like you debunked it yourself. :)

    I get

    and a letter oct 24, 1798 14 months before he died.


    Although I see no evidence GW said those particular words, I stumbled across this link which is interesting if true. I did not fact check any of the facts on this link though.

    The general tone of the quote is not incompatible with actual American politics, but not really in Washington's time. It was quite the conspiracy theory in the 1800s.
