Excerpt from Message From the President of the United States: 1901 A. D The proof of the pudding is in the eating thereof, and here you have the pudding just as the Catholic cooks delivered it at the close of the Spanish-American war. When you read this, if you wish America degraded to the level of the Philippines, you will kw exactly how to bring it about, but if you wish to avoid, such a condition in this country, you can see the necessity of rejecting Romanism and the greater necessity of keeping papists out of office, out of the schools, and out of power. With confidence in the ability of the American-people to learn the lesson this book teaches, and a firm faith in their patriotism and desire to avert the greatest calamity that ever threatened the nation, this edition of this most important document is submitted without a single word of the original text changed, but with a wide margin and with marginal tes that we trust may be helpful to the reader.
