ORMUZD AND A HRIMAN
HENRY WINTER DAVIS.
Litora litoribus contraria, fluctibus undas
ENTERED, according to the Act of Congress, in the year 1852, by
HENRY WINTER DAVIS,
TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE.
The American People have passed the season of youth when withdrawn from the eye of the world their pleasures might blamelessly be their pursuits.
In the maturity of years and strength they are amenable to mankind for the conformity of their conduct to the higher motives of policy and duty.
They cannot if they would be silent and neutral in that great controversy of the age which they opened on the field of battle.
It concerns their safety that the part they play be adopted in full view of all the dangers that beset them.
