Whatever I've done, I've been able to do after passing through crushing miseries and endless troubles all my life and fighting with my opponents. With great difficulty I've brought this Caravan where it is seen today. Let the Caravan march on despite hurdles that may come its way. If my lieutenants are not able to take the Caravan ahead they should leave it there, but under no circumstances should they allow the Caravan to go back. This is the message to my people.
