8868. WAR, Avoidance of.—[continued].

How much better is it
for neighbors to help than to hurt one another;
how much happier must it make them.
If you will cease to make war on one another,
if you will live in friendship with all mankind,
you can employ all your time in providing
food and clothing for yourselves and your
families. Your men will not be destroyed in
war, your women and children will lie down
to sleep in their cabins without fear of being
surprised by their enemies and killed or carried
away. Your numbers will be increased
instead of diminished, and you will live in
plenty and in quiet.—
Address to Mandar Nation. Washington ed. viii, 201.
