Garibaldi’s Enthusiasm

I did not agree with Garibaldi’s judgment in all things, but I did admire his enthusiasm. I never saw his name in the newspapers or in a book, but I read all I could find about him. There was something about him that fired me up. I remember reading of the time when he was on the way to Rome in 1867, and when he was cast into prison. I read the letter he sent to his com­rades.
“If fifty Garibaldis are thrown into prison, let Rome be free!”
He did not care for his own comfort, so long as the cause of freedom in Italy was advanced. Such a love for our Master and His cause makes us ready to go out and do His work whatever it may cost us personally. Depend upon it, the Lord will use that in His service.
