Excerpt from England's Policy and Peril: A Letter to the Earl of Beaconsfield

Yes, England is an Asiatic Power, and momentous occurrences are at this hour passing in Asia. Passing, did I say? I pray Heaven they be not already passed! Kars has fallen, Erzeroum is threatened, and may pos sibly have succumbed even before these lines meet your eye. Batoum and Trebizond will in turn be menaced, and Armenia is already designated at Moscow and St. Petersburg as a Russian province. I do not pause to inquire whether Kars fell the victim to a night attack, or to something darker than night. Treasons, strata gems, and toils have marked the course of the aggressors from the day when they paid the Bulgarians to revolt against their Sovereign to this hour when they would bribe Mohammedans to betray him, and the motions of Muscovite generals may well be, like those of Muscovite diplomatists, as dark as Erebus. No investigations can increase our knowledge of Russia's perfidy, and it is not with its chicane, but with its conquests, that we have now to deal. Save for snow, that will infallibly melt, its legions are virtually masters of Armenia, and the whole of Asia Minor feels the reverberation of their triumph.
