that his own courage Would be tested if he in-,, ,

self-control could have :enabled him to pre.,

the bully club,, and it was, determined that.

From an instinctive feeling tbat the Briton

which compelled 'all otheis to answer a regy

the Briton was cut by - every e7.e, except those
whose - religious character compelled them to
appear openly on the side of peace. The sal

humiliatiq position. Never was a determin

of insult short of actual violence was heaped
upon him. Shunned even by those w' holelt'
