Excerpt from The Loyal Legion and the Civil War A few days since, there appeared in a local paper a communication from one who declared that the veterans of the Civil War were no longer to be considered as useful for any purpose connected with the history of those momentous days; that their sons were even to be henceforth silent, and to leave to the veterans of the Spanish-American War the right of way on all official occasions as the only representatives of the fighting force of the nation's war veterans. Whilst thinking over the possible effect, hereafter, of such reckless suggestions made at this time, I recalled a short account I had read of an incident which occurred in England, preceding the Russo-Japanese War of 1904. It recited that a distinguished Japanese nobleman, having been engaged for some months studying the military preparedness of the great nations of Europe, was being entertained at a house party gathered together by one of Great Britain's leading statesmen. The Japanese nobleman, having intimated his approaching departure for home, one of the guests with a view to drawing out his opinions on their Government's grandeur and power, was surprised at the frankness of the reply he received. The Japanese nobleman, frankly stated that he had been sent to observe and report upon the preparedness of the different governments for war, to the end that Japan might be fully informed and know where to seek an ally in case of trouble with Russia.
