humanity, will depend on whether they preserve
and apply the same qualities which won undying
renown in Belgium and France and in the air.
These qualities cannot be compressed into defini-
tions, but it can be affirmed that they were made up, in
the main, of high intelligence, practical ability, co-
operating good-will and courage beyond the end.
LET US ALL WORK TOGETHER
WITH GOOD-WILL.
All our women, our men who were too old to be of
any use as fighting soldiers, and others, did their
feeble best to back you up from home. When you
come back we want you to stand with us; and
we want to stand with you as comrades to contribute
our united best to the strength, prosperity, goodness
and greatness of our well-beloved land. Many of
the best of those who came over gave their lives for
the preservation of her liberty, and that justice,
honour and fair-play should not perish in our day.
Our country, which has been bought anew by their
blood and your service, can be no greater in charac-
ter than we ourselves are; and it can be “a country
fit for heroes to live in” only in so far as we to-
gether prove ourselves diligent enough and heroic
enough in peace to make contributions of service such
as will match your gloriously matchless contributions
in war.
JAS. W. ROBERTSON,
Chairman
(of the Committee on Preparation
and Publication of this Pamphlet).
