I feel the full weight of the responsibilities now devolving on me...
Σελίδα 893 - ... ability as soldiers ; but what I want is to express my thanks to you and McPherson, as the men to whom, above all others, I feel indebted for whatever I have had of success. How far your advice and assistance have been of help to me you know.
