Life is a Battlefield

A selection from a letter by Elizabeth Prentiss to Mrs. Condict, November 7, 1875:

Whatever may be said to the contrary by others, to me life has been a battlefield, and I believe always will be; but is the soldier necessarily unhappy and disgusted because he is fighting? I trow not.
