economy, of the necessity of which we are every day reminded; and he who writes us down fools, before we have proved our incompetency, is himself included in his own accusation. There is an abiding compensation in all our troubles. Through successes and reverses, through doubts and distractions, not less than through encouraging good fortunes, we are making for ourselves an antiquity and a history — we are consolidating a nationality — we are storing up precious traditions — we are, in the midst of war, becoming worthy of the blessings of peace.
