[[end column 1]] [[begin column 2]] In view of the original[[?]] events of the past few weeks and their critical effect upon the destinies of two countries which are, by virtue of authorized pledges, actual and implied, one and the same, it is expedient that the people of the United States should become aware of the memorable pledges made in their behalf at the time of the occupation of our Island; what the National Legistature is doing regarding the fulfilment of those obligations; and, lastly, what the people of the Island have a right to expect by way of civil rights and privileges--what they may equitably demand not only for the restoration of their former prosperity, but for the preservation of their very existence. In the summer of 'ninety-eight Gen. Nelson A. Miles and a small army accomplished a practically bloodless victory over an island which had been four hundred years under the yoke of Spain misrule. Instead of enemies. he found only friends; instead of shot and shell, only cheers of welcome, and planting there the flag which was hailed as the symbol of a pleople's deliverance, he promised "protection not only to the Islanders but to their property"; and "to promote prosperity, and bestow upon them the immunities and blessings of the liberal institqtions of the American Government." Not content, however, with allowing the people of Puerto Rico to remain in ignorance of their exact [[italics]]status[[/italics]] as either citizens or subjects of their adopted country; deaf to their cries of distress and blind to their imperative needs, the National Congress now proposes to add ignominy to sorrow and injustice to affliction by imposing upon the Island, systems of taxation and vassalage as inmoral in principle as they are questionable in purppse; as odious to freedom-loving Americans as they are obnoxious to the people they oppress, and identical with those which drove the American patriots of '76 to resist and destroy by force of arms the tyrant that imposed them. Against the express wlll and wish of the Chief Executive in his last message to Congress;against the solemn vows of thesoldier who first hoisted the flag of freedom over Puerto Rican soil; against the advice of the honorable Secretary of War; the Governors General of the Island; the recommendations of the President's Special Commissioner; and the United States Consul General to Puerto Rico; against the just demands of the Puerto Rican Delegates; and above all against the combined sentiment of the representative press and seventy-five millions of people, whose exponent it is, -- an unjust and odious tax measure has passed the House of Representatives, and it is now even proposed to set aside all measures establishing civil government for the Island. The American people and the press, who, thrusting aside all Constitutional questions and all subterfuges or sophistries, have recently, almost with one voice, emphatically demanded for Puerto Rico as [[italics]]her right,[[/italics]] free commerce with the United States, will be starteed and indignant beyond measure to learn that it is now proposed to fling the reduced tariff [[end column 2]] [[start column 3]] so little ago, every good thing under the folds of the American flag? It arouses the utmost indignation that a million intelligent Christian people, nearly eighty per cent. of Caucasion birth, long in the enjoyment of the highest rights of representation in the National Cortes of Spain; who have had universal suffrage, municipal autonomy, and (substantially) free commerce with their sovereign country for years; a community whose thrift, freedom from debt, virtue, and achievements bespeak its character which freed its slaves on its own motion and paid for them without murmer; whose steadfastness gave it the name, even in Spain of <> must now plead for those fundamental civil rights which the Fathers of the great Republic declared to be <> of every man. To deny immediate stable civil government to Puerto Rico means (beside the vio enc[[?]] done the overwhelming and unanswerable moral considerations which demand it ):-- [[italics]]First.[[/italics]] To continue upon a million people without defensible warrant or excuse, th[[?]] always blighting and repressive effects of military government, alike abhorrent to the people of the United States and of Puerto Rico, for military government is repugnant to American ideas, is never progressive, and can at most only hope to maintain order and preserve the [[italics]]status quo.[[/italics]] It breeds distrust, suppresses ambition, stimulates resentments, and destroys every incentive an hope: [[italics]]Second.[[/italics]] It means to prevent the investment of capital, the extension of trade-enterprises, or the development of the resources of the island. Capital will not venture where trade-conditions, government, and laws are not stable and without capital to rehabilitate her ruined interests, restore her industries and develop her resources, Puerto Rico m[[ust?]] revert to a state of nature, which in the tropic it requires but a few months of neglect effect: [[italics]] Third. [[/italics]] It means the absence of adequate law to protect person and property, regulate society, and advance agriculture and commerce: [[italics]] Fourth. [[/italics]] It means that no authority can exist for the negotiation of a Territorial lo[[?]] whereby the Island, pledging its credit and resources, can alone raise the funds [[italics]]absolutely essential [[/italics]] for the maintenance of public works and improvements, educational advantages and assistance to the ruined agriculturi[[sm?]] upon whose prosperity the very life of the Island must depend. It was to enable Congress to authorize and arrange this loan in interests of agriculture that the President extended for six months, the prorogation mortgage forclosures: [[italics]]Fifth:[[/italics]] It means idle and wasted plan[[ta]]tions, deserted sugar mills and factories, stagnant commerce, a wandering and starving people, -- an utterly and cruelly desolated and ruined Island.

Although very high water we had great trouble in getting ashore, and it took us a full 2 hours to get to the cave. Better prepared than before we obtained 19 specimens of bats of 3 species, all by shooting. The return trip was quicker, we arriving in S.J. after 5 pm. Spent evening in Plaza Principal.

It began to rain in short showers the entire way until we reached the coffee plantation [[insertion]][[triple underline]]886'[[/insertion]][[/triple underline]] "Catalina"; Mr. Augostini received us very hospitably, invited us to stay and would send for guide to El Yunque, so we gladly received his invitation and sent the horses back to Mameyes.

THe guide with 6 men turned up after breakfast and packing was soon accomplished, followed by a long palaver as to the best way of proceeding, and the cost of the affair, the guide going back on his original bargain as the men refused. Notwithstanding that the price was doubled the men quit and the guide is now hustling for others. Fortunately no time was really lost today, as the heavy rain was prohibitive. It cleared in the afternoon, however. [[end page]] [[start page]] [[preprinted]] Ther. SATURDAY FEB. 24, 1900 Wea. [[/preprinted]] fine with only heavy cloud banks on the eastern horizon. Up before sunrise, packing again, and then old guide and men appearing we started out at 7.20 am, 7 men carrying on their heads our baggage. After a very laborious ascent we finally reached our camping [[insert]] [[triple underline]] 2863' [[/triple underline]] [[/insert]] ground by the last water [[strikethrough]] shed [[/strikethrough]] beneath the steep final rise of the peak El Yunque itself, at 12 noon. Cleared a site and got our tent up, in fact made camp ready, then looked around for specimens. Was at once rewarded for the trip by finding another tree frog, undoubtedly additional and possibly new. [[preprinted]] Ther. SUNDAY 25 Wea. [[/preprinted]] cloudy during most of the day, but especially in the morning when we had some fog and showers during the night. Consequently postponed the ascent of the peak collecting around camp, but animal life is very scant and with the exception of tree frogs the collections were very meager. Set traps, but nothing but snails in them. [[preprinted]] Ther. MONDAY 26 Wea. [[/preprinted]] foggy & rainy in the morning. Temp at 1.30 am 63 degrees (corr.) at 5.30 am 62 degrees (corr.) at which time the rain commenced.

[[preprinted]] Ther. TUESDAY, FEB. 27, 1900 [[/preprinted]] same only worse; heavy fog in the morning followed by a continued rain which in the afternoon changed to showers with slight intermissions. In view of the expense and time involved in [[strikethrough]] the [[/strikethrough]] reaching this place and that the weather has thus far rendered collecting unprofitable we decided at noon to send one of the boys as messenger to Mr. Agostini asking that the porters for our return do not start until Saturday next. R shot 2 [[underlined]] Nesospingus [[/underlined]]. [[preprinted]] Ther. WEDNESDAY 28 Wea. [[/preprinted]] continues the dense rain and fog, but wind has changed in the morning from SE to NE? At 9 o'cl the porters suddenly appeared, as Mr. Agostini had gone to San Juan and there was nobody at the plantation who could read English. Breaking camp at once commenced, while I with our [[underlined]] 3350 [[/underlined]] natives ascended the El Yunque in the fog to get a barometric reading at the top. Nothing could be seen. At 11 am the downward march began in a violent rain which lasted until our arrival at the Catalina plantation at 2.30 pm thoroughly soaked. Rain continues at interval so nothing can be dried out. Developed a few 5x7 photos [[strikethrough]] in [[/strikethrough]] that night. [[preprinted]] Ther. THURSDAY, MAR 1 Wea.[[/preprinted]] a little better, rain with occasional sun glinting. busy drying and cleaning. Later in the day it cleared off so that we succeeded pretty well in having our things dried.

SATURDAY 3 Wea.[[/preprinted]] very fine and as we reached sea level very hot. Packed early but ox team came late and we did not get off until 11.40 arriving in extreme E end of Luquillo at 3.30 hardly without a stop. Grand palaver in & about house, Benito's [[mother's ?]] not being exactly to our taste. The heat was great and walking the shadeless road did not improve matters and perhaps the water of a whole cocoa-nut did [[strikethrough]] not [[/strikethrough]] contribute, [[enough ?]] I had a terrible headache with feaver [[preprinted]] Ther. SUNDAY 4 Wea. [[/preprinted]] off and on showers. The shanty has to be endured. All morning occupyed by receiving bats and [[underline]] Sphaerodactylus [[/underline]] and afternoon in skinning and preparing the [[former ? frames ?]]. I felt so bad that I had to give up after skinning the [[bird?]] and lie down. We have no quinine here, but have taken a couple of liver pills as I suspect the attack to be bilious.

At Lareqes took up Mr. Warren D. Manning, a Boston architect, who had just been to the top of El Yunque, but with the same poor result as we. He stayed one night at the "cave" and ascended and returned to Catalina the same day. He proved a very pleasant companion and as we both stopped at the Inglaterra we roomed together. At Rio Piedras we left the coach and took the train in. [[preprinted in journal]] Ther. TUESDAY 6 Wea.[[/preprinted in journal]] fine Feel a good deal better, and am convinced the whole trouble is biliousness. Called first on Weather Bureau where Mr. Noyes in charge, and comparing notes we found the aneroid had worked very [[?aly?]] in fact excellently, giving us an approximate height of 3318' by the Smithson. tables. Then called on Major Glassford and returned aneroid to him. Considered it wise to keep quiet during the hot part of the day and rested accordingly. Later called on Mr. Agostini and his father in law to thank for hospitality received. Went early to bed. Mailed [[an?]] long letter to M., got two from her! A load off my heart! [[preprinted in journal]] Ther. WEDNESDAY 7 Wea.[[/preprinted in journal]] began with heavy showers but warmed up fine.

Finally at 1pm. got letter from M. with enclosed one from Anna Carlsson, and news of Ans' moving to New York. Good for him, sad for us! Mr. Manning left on S.S. San Juan this afternoon. Am easily tired and weak-kneed, otherwise apparently well, though slept not at all last night. Left S.J. on 5pm. train and arrived in Carolina shortly before 6.

Left Carolina in the mail coach at about 9.30am Driver on the way told me Richmond was very sick with feaver. As the grip is ˄[[insert: said to be]] epidemic on the island I got at the drugstore in Rio Grande both additional quinine and phenacetine. Lunched well at hotel in Rio Grande. Arriving in Luquillo at 2.30 found R. in bed better, but with considerable pain. Towards evening he improved somewhat I hope to get him away from there tomorrow. I have a raging headache in the temples. [[preprinted in journal]] Ther. FRIDAY 9 Wea.[[/preprinted in journal]] fine R. had a [[strikethrough]] y [[/strikethrough]] little sleep and so had I, so both a little better this morning: will try to get out of this hole. Arranged to have an oxteam come for our baggage at 1.30, and feebled as we were we got our things together in time and sent the oxen with Frederico ahead, then waited for the mail coach. But as bad luck would have it it was full and we were in a fix out of which the alcalde offered to help us at twice the coach rates. We accepted gladly, and after some delay - they could not find the key to the coach house - went away at 3.40 in his rickety rig, arriving in Fajardo at 5 and stopped at Mr. A Holst's hotel. [[Dischardeed?]] Frederico and Benito. R. got stiff neck from ride, feels bad. [[preprinted in journal]] Ther. SATURDAY 10 Wea.[[/preprinted in journal]] fair. R. complains of little sleep, and stiff, painful neck, feels blue and wants to take the boat to San Juan, but upon brightening up later decides to stay.

Telegraphed Glassford for ambulance to take us off Wednesday. [[preprinted in journal]] Ther. TUESDAY 13 Wea. [[/preprinted in journal]] fine Trouble in chest not improving ; head dull; feeble. Got answer from Glassford that ambulance cannot be here in time but will be to bring us in Thursday. Went out with R. to try some collecting; he got a [[underline]] [[C??ba]] [[/underline]] and went home. I thinking I would test my strength continued out a pine road past the new cemetery about 1 1/2 mile. The miserable ammunition prevented me from obtaining specimens. Returned very tired, with headache and considerable fever. [[end page]] [[start page]] [[preprinted in journal]] Ther. WEDNESDAY MAR. 14, 1900 Wea. [[/preprinted in journal]] fine. Our condition unchanged. The ambulance arrived shortly before noon, and reflecting that it holds hardly more than our bagge and that we would scarcely be able to stand the jolting we decided to send it off with our boxes and to take a coach for [[strikethrough]] Rio [[/strikethrough]] San Juan tomorrow morning. The fever returned as usual about dinner time: took 10 gr. quinine [[preprinted in journal]] Ther. THURSDAY 15 Wea. [[/preprinted in journal]] good. Did so in company with our host Mr. Holst and starting at 8 o'clock were able to reach Rio Piedras in time for a good lunch before the 2.42 train, so that we were in San Juan before 4 pm stopping this time at the "Mayflower". Went at once to quartermasters' wharf and accertained arrival of our goods.

We climbed a steep hill, which fatigued us very much and we found a [[insertion]] small [[/insertion]] cave, but no bats. Afterward visited Dr. Stahl, who said he would make special efforts to get toads for me.

[[preprinted]] Ther. WEDNESDAY, APRIL 4, 1900 Wea. [[/preprinted]] fine. Went out after breakfast to shoot birds and was kept busy by the antics of a bird which afterwards turned out to be the Palm Warbler! In afternoon went out for Ameivas, but it being cloudy none were out and I returned empty-handed. Our telegraph operator succeeded later! By noon he promised Sapo conchos before 8'cl and at 7.30 he sent word that he had 5 and he was correct this time! A begger whom he met in the morning he engaged and the b. made 1 peso.

There being no hope of lizards being out in the rain I did not go out til after noon. Got 18 specimens of 3 species of Anolis and one bird. The slight walk aggravates my haemorr. however. Dr. L. A. de Gonzaque from Lares advised me to go to that place as a good collecting ground and acc. to his information I will give up the trip on Adjuntas and Ponce for Lares-Mayaguez. [[end page]] [[start page]] [[preprinted]] Ther. SATURDAY, APRIL 7, 1900 Wea. [[/preprinted]] cloudy with alternating light sprinkle of rain and sun glints.
