Notes
Content : Printed on border: "Not long ago, some oxen of our herds upon the moor, in furious fight among themselves, as oft I've seen before, were suddenly surpris'd to see some wolves, which, crouching low, were stealing on the herd to strike an unexpected blow. Like magic, all at once, th' intestine feuds and bloodshed cease, as though the common danger had subdued them all to peace : and quick, as if impres'd with all the folly of their strife; made sensible that Union alone could save the life" Includes additional text.
