John Bright was a British Radical and Liberal statesman, a Quaker orator who battled the Corn Laws, and a promoter of free-trade policies.

He says in one letter, dated January 11, 1865: "I take a special interest in the United States because they seem to me to have advanced human freedom beyond the point hitherto reached in Europe. I am observing the progress of your great conflict with an unabated interest, and I hope that before the year expires the rebellion may be suppresssed..."

The United States Civil War, the "great conflict" to which Bright refers, would end in May of that same year.
