The mundane affairs of commerce and industry, with the necessity of maintaining them in perfect security, are essential factors of our national existence and welfare, and are closely linked with the peoples spiritual interests. Our final record in history may indeed be the great ideals of nationhood we stood for, as expressed in our literature, art, and laws, but the strength to do these things, and the power to give them enduring worth, require a spirit of expansiveness, and a breadth of imagination as well as an ability for skilful manipulation of material resources, combined with a ready capacity to turn them to the utmost profitable advantage.

These energies, deeply absorbed as they were in promoting the material well-being of the people, constitute an important source for the maintenance of those higher duties which vitally affect their future standing and influence. Indifference to these physical necessities on the part of leaders must inevitably bring about national decay, whereas a lively concern in all that pertains to commercial activity and industrial advancement will tend to produce a strong sense of unity and conserve national self-dependence.

The recognition of all interests, with a due regard to the mutual obligations involved, is essential for the compact development of the Empire. These common purposes necessitate readiness to resist external pressure likely to militate against their successful fulfilment. We cannot set ourselves to realise a solid and enduring union, exercising a preponderant influence in the world, without rousing the jealousy of others aiming at a similar position- and it is a matter of supreme moment to provide against the incidences of international prejudices.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
