If new difficulties arise…

“The Engagement between the Surveillante and HMS Quebec” by George Carter

“This stroke is severe indeed, and has distressed us much. But, notwithstanding things at present have a dark and gloomy aspect, I hope a spirited opposition will check the progress of General Burgoyne’s army, and that the confidence derived from his success will lead him into measures that will, in their consequences be favorable to us. We should never despair, our position has before been unpromising, and has changed for the better; so, I trust, it will again. If new difficulties arise, we must only put forth new exertions, and proportion our efforts to the exigency of the times.” George Washington
