Aspects of English and Imperial History
L. C. B. SEAMAN
Apart from the realm of letters and art—in which, in my humble judgement, France is her compeer, and even her superior—in everything that makes a people great, in colonizing power, in trade and commerce, in all the higher arts of civilization, England not only excels all other nations of the modern world, but all nations in ancient history as well.
SIR WILFRID LAURIER, 1898
