Excerpt from The United States and Foreign Powers
The diplomatic history of the United States is a record of which any nation might be proud. Without a corps of trained diplomatists like those to Whom the management of the foreign relations of the European governments are in trusted, Without an army or a navy to enforce its claims, and With only a sense of justice and a consciousness of right, this country has succeeded through 0a century in maintaining its dignity and protecting its national honor. From the skillful and patient endeavors of Franklin, Adams, and Jefferson to secure the respect and recognition of the greater powers of the world for the feeble colonies then struggling for independence, to the able and courageous efforts of the present administration to protect the fisheries and sealing grounds of our citizens, it is a record of peace ful victories. There have been some incidents like those which led to the Mexican War, and the recent legislation against the Chinese, concerning which there may be a difference of Opinion; but as a Whole the inﬂuence of Ameri can diplomacy has had a Wholesome and permanent effect upon the other nations of the world.
