WE are mak­ing sac­ri­fices to pre­serve this pleas­ant land of Eng­land today for which there is no par­al­lel in his­tory, un­less per­haps in that dim time when, un­sur­ren­der­ing, the Bri­tons of these is­lands went down be­fore the re­peated in­va­sions of that new race we call our own—the English. We look back and see the grad­ual fu­sion of all the dif­fer­ent con­querors un­til there has emerged from the sto­ried past the love that makes men die for ‘this blessed plot, this earth, this realm, this Eng­land’.
