Additional Details

". . . The end aim[e]d at is noble, but like all such movements, everything depends upon the management. . . . I think there would be great risk of failure and the last stage of these poor unfortunates would be worse than the first. In the nature of the case, the interruption of their work at home is but temporary. This awful war cannot last. Peaceful settlement is certain."
