Lie state distinctly that he is engaged in an Effort to raise Money for the purposes of the Cuba revolution and he says he knows of no Laws prohibiting Ench a course. ridicules the i Roe Lantion of the president and intimates that there is no such thing As a on expresses the opinion that there will be no War with Spain and he concludes with this language _ the unanimous opinion throughout tiie country is that the Unity Cabinet of the president has certain fixed principles of action that As no two of its members to link alike in an question they take weekly Don t let the Printer make a mistake and print that word Mccaa i turns at a fixed policy. Now there Are eight members including the president., and i pre Hume he is no Lowed Tolmac hib turn so that the War policy stands no Hance of ruling Only during tic week in each eight weeks and a Ndaw arc not quite enough to carry this court Rinto a War.

Regarding the fourth string " a decent respect for the Opin ions of Mankind towards the administration in Vinejr of the prospective alliances Between us t requires that i should Mountain a respectful silence.
