I Am Perfectly Aware


        I am perfectly aware that, in some instances, every species of obstruction will at first be thrust in the way of those who try to follow my advice, and, in others, that the change will be obeyed with reluctance.  But determination and tact combined will, I think, overcome opposition after a time, and the very malcontents themselves will end by praising the new regime.
