dc.description.abstract "The death of Englands venerable queen marks the end of the longest and most illustrious reign in English history. Not alone her own people but those of every civilized nation mourn for her, not merely that she was a queen but because she was an enlightened, humane and sensible sovereign and ever aimed to act from a standpoint of right and justice. In her domestic relations the queen was to her people the highest example of a wise and affectionate mother. Next to the British themselves Americans perhaps revered her most in return for her kindly feeling toward them. It is said to be due to her and her lamented husband that war between the two countries was averted during our civil strife, when belligerent English statesmen were looking for a pretext that would justify an assault upon the beleaguered republic. A frown from their gracious sovereign, however, dissipated the danger and averted what might have been a life and death struggle." en_US
