But within these days our hearts have been pierced by the recital of proceedings in that country more brutal than any recorded in the annals of the world.
    James Boswell (1740–1795)

    It is the true office of history to represent the events themselves, together with the counsels, and to leave the observations and conclusions thereupon to the liberty and faculty of every man’s judgement.
