Somebody said...

Day 8

 “Somebody said, there was nobody on our side but the Almighty. The Doctor who is a native of Switzerland, and speaks but broken English, quickly replied, “Dat is enough - Dat is enough,” and turning to me, says he, “It puts me in mind of the fellow who once said, ‘The Catholics have on their side the Pope, and the king of France, and the king of Spain, and the king of Sardinia, and the king of Poland, and the Emperor of Germany etc. etc. etc. But as to them poor Devils the Protestants, they have nothing on their side but God Almighty’”
