which you seek, I need only remind you of what
the poet says :—
Courage yet, my brother or my sister.
Keep on—Liberty is to be subserved whatever occurs ;
That is nothing that is quell'd by one or two failures, or any number of failures.
Or by the indifference or ingratitude of the people, or by any unfaithfulness.
Or the show of the tushes of powers, soldiers, cannon, penal statutes.
What we believe in waits latent for ever through all the continents.
Invites no one, promises nothing, sits in calmness and light, is positive and composed, knows no discouragement.
Waiting patiently, waiting its time.
