Excerpt from Imperial England
Never has there been a time when the British Empire and its history has had the significance for thinking Amer icans that it has to-day. For, in the words of Sir Charles Dilke, If the English race has a mission in the world it is surely this, to prevent peace on earth from depending on the verdict of a single man. In the days of Napo leon England saved Europe and civilization from such a catastrophe. To-day, not only have millions of Britons taken the field against German autocracy, but the British navy, British finance, British industry, have made possible the heroic and sustained resistance of France and Belgium to the formidable power which threatens to overwhelm them. And to-day, it may be added, it is the British ﬂeet which makes possible the pouring of millions of Americans across the Atlantic resolved that government of, for and by the people shall not perish from the earth.
