H'ry to Wm, Dec. 29, 1903. Age: 60

Wm, on the latest warhawking:

"I enclose my last public utterance -- autant en emporte le vent! -- but being asked, I felt it was my duty to stand by the little band."

And H'ry's reply:

"I am 'carried away' by your Anti-imperialist discourse, as I am by all your discourses; only I feel it will be a long day before we do really revomit the Philippines."
