There is a beautiful thought in the address of the ladies of England in reply to Mrs. Stowe: “You have sent us the Griswold for the Alabama.” Not “a Roland for an Oliver,” not tit for tat, but good for evil. Let it pass into a saying in our mother tongue, “A Griswold for an Alabama,” when good is returned for evil.”*

*During the war the ship George Griswold was sent to England with a cargo for her starving poor.

I'm a lover of God and His Son Jesus Christ. In addition I love to make yesterday's words come alive through the republishing of good and profitable books of old. The Civil War project is an ongoing labor of love. - Karan
