i ills disaster . nas resulted in a
greater loss of life than ony of our
wars for independence. Indeed, the
situation ia much worse, as, while war
is always preceded by a period of pre
paration, this has happened within 40
seconds. , While war only affects th
young and strong among the people,
the present calamity has mowed d3vm
women and children, old men and
youths. While in war the armies arc
followed by the most complete camp
hospitals, the numberless wounded in
Calabria, and eastern Sicily have been
left in many cases 48 hours without
ssistance." Even when rescued it 1

available having been filled by the
