"God has judged . . . but in other respects, He has mercifully and singularly spared us. He has tempered our trials with mercies. So far from aggravating war by famine, He has given us, during the period of this conflict, eminently fruitful seasons. Regarding our country as a whole, and especially the loyal States, the harvests of 1861-'62, taking every kind of product, have been bountiful almost beyond precedent. Thus, while vast numbers of our laborers have been withdrawn from the field to the camp, the loss has been more than made up by the immediate hand of God."

"We may always notice, in the history of the world, tht when God designs to carry a people through any great crisis, he is wont to raise up for them men adapted to meet the crisis. This strikingly appears in the annals of Israel, and scarcely less so in our own. When did any people have abler counsellors than we had in the critical times which immediately preceded the War of Independence? Look at the Declaration of Independence itself, and other earlier State papers. Examine the discussions of the Continental Congress, and even in the pulpit. The vindications of our cause and the cause of human liberty were able, eloquent, triumphant. They were read, and pondered, and admired throughout the civilized world."
