Do you recognise
these lines ?

He—he blasted ’em with his natural speech. He asked them half-a-dozen times over whether the United States had enough armed ships for any shape or sort of war with any one...He put it to ’em whether, setting ships aside, their country—I reckon he gave ’em good reasons—whether the United States was ready or able to face a new big war ... the strong way he laid it all before ’em blasted ’em, and when he’d done it was like a still in the woods after a storm.
