[2] For of confederates that bring them in money, they have more than we; and war is not so much war of arms as war of money by means whereof arms are useful, especially when it is a war of land men against sea men.

For we that must be thought the causers of all events, good or bad, have reason also to take some leisure in part to foresee them.
