Hi Jim,

Those words do mean "truth and diligence"--but I think you're right that there's no "by." If there were, it would be "veritate et diligencia." Hope that helps.smiley - smiley

the full motto on the plaque is
-
"by truth and diligence"
-
so does the one you left still apply.
-
as"veritate et diligencia"
-
