[24] In so vast a civil war, when there was such ardour of feeling and of warlike preparation on both sides, it was impossible but that—whatever the ultimate result of the war might he—the republic which had been violently shaken by it should lose my ornaments of its dignity and many bulwarks of its security, and that each general should do many things while in arms, which he would have forbidden to have been done while clad in the garb of Peace. And all those wounds of war thus inflicted now require your attention, and there is no one except you who is able to heal them.
