The million-peopled city
Immense Cost of War as compared with the Insignificant Amount which would now add greatly to their Comfort, and promote their Best Interests.
There is an open door to us to do this, and it may be done at a very small cost. What millions have been spent on wars, ofttimes sinful and injurious! Yet these have been given willingly for the emptiness of worldly glory, not always obtained. Two or three lay visitors of a right order would be incalculable comforts and blessings to these veterans. And their annual support would scarcely be the cost of a single hour's bloody warfare. It is even what they themselves, irreligious as they often are, desire, with few exceptions.
