We would join you in thanksgiving and praise. If God be for us, who can be against us? Nor would we condemn your confident look to our armies, when they can meet with a foe not too greatly their superior in numbers. The year past tells a story of heroism and success of which our nation will never be ashamed. These considerations, however, should only stimulate us to greater deeds and nobler efforts.

Toombs, M. J. Crawford, Thomas R. R. Co
