May we ever strivoby calmness, by justico, by honourable diplomacy, by, long forbearance, by trying to make ourselves among the nations not only feared but loved, by being ready to mergo petty interests in the broader interests of humanity, by promoting, if possible, in evory case tho settlement by impartial arbitration of national disputes; by over acting up to tho truth, that so far as tlioro is any analogy between them tho moral law does apply to nations no loss than to individuals; may we over strive to hasten tho day whon the war-drum shall throb no longer, and nothing be permitted to break the brotherhood of man ivith man.
