There are our volunteers at home; and the army which holds India can hardly be considered as one with that which is to maintain our prestige in Europe and the West.

We made some natural blunders in the Crimea, but in making those blunders we taught ourselves the trade. It is the misfortune of the Northern States that they must learn these lessons in fighting their own countrymen. In the course of our history we have suffered the same calamity more than once.

But England was not ruined by that civil war; nor was she ruined by those which preceded it. From out of these she came forth stronger than she entered them - stronger, better, and more fit for a great destiny in the history of nations.
