We have heard so many different rumors, about different subjects, that we are rather slow to believe anything we don't see. (Money especially.)
James Henry Gooding, On the Altar of Freedom: A Black Soldier's Civil War Letters from the Front

Charles Dickens
Union means so many millions a year lost to the South; secession means the loss of the same millions to the North. The love of money is the root of this …. The quarrel between the North and the South is, as it stands, solely a fiscal quarrel." --Charles Dickens, 1861 article on the cause of the American Civil War
Charles Dickens
