Sample Sentences & Example Usage

  1. Charles Sumner:

    The island of San Domingo, situated in tropical waters, and occupied by another race, of another color, never can become a permanent possession of the United States. You may seize it by force of arms or by diplomacy, where a naval squadron does more than the minister, but the enforced jurisdiction cannot endure. Already by a higher statute is that island set apart to the colored race... I protest against this legislation as another stage in a drama of blood. I protest against it in the name down, in the name of peace imperiled, and in the name of the African race, whose first effort at independence is rudely assailed.
