Time to straighten the tie, brush the teeth, comb the hair, shave the cheeks and stay neat at all costs. A lessor man would have trouble. He would find it difficult. He would make excuses. He might panic. A man with a moustache knows only one course -action. He knows to be prepared. He knows to get ready. He knows above all that it is the time to stand up and address the other men with the truth.
The time for pandering and idleness is over. The only time available is the time for action. That time is now! How long before the enemy arrive? One day, one week, one month? Who can say? But what can be said is that he will be met. The fight will be won by those who are ready...and neat.
