Across the front of the house occupied by Colonel Raleigh Colston, next door to the Lee residence, beside other tasteful decorations, was the inscription done in black upon a white ground in old [297] English text, ‘They only the victory win who have held to their faith unseduced by the prize that the world holds on high—who have dared for a high cause to suffer, resist, fight, and if need be to die.’
