: "We who labor/labour here seek only [the] truth"

: This phrase is written in the form of a quote on court houses throughout the United States, but lacks a source. I have researched numerous databases, using the quote and then parts of the quote, with no results and feel that it is in widespread use and would make an important contribution to The Phrase Finder.

: I have a feeling this one will be a very difficult one and hope you are up to the challenge.

I've looked in six quote books including a legal quote book. No luck. Anyone else up for the challenge?
