We are very glad to be able to inform our readers that we have received permission to reprint the noble Address by Mr. Lansing which was published in the Spectator of September 17th last. The Address was originally delivered by the American Secretary of State to the Reserve Officers' Training Corps at Madison Bar- . racks, New York. It is a treasure-house of lofty and inspiring thought. As we said at the time, we do not suppose that the officers of any army, in any country, at any period in history, took up arms with higher moral credentials than are provided in Mr. Lansing's Address. •Copies can be obtained at the rate of a penny each post free from Messrs. Speaight and Sons, 1849 Fetter Lane, E.C. 4. Less than three copies cannot be supplied.
