To-day in the history of Haiti the 4th of March is the beginning of a new era. Mr. Harding, the defender of our cause and advocate of our rights, had entered the White House as President of the United States in place of Mr. Woodrow Wilson, the man of baneful prejudices, who conspired against the existence of our country with the complicity of a group of business men in America, such as Messrs. Farnham & Co. May he retire to private life followed by the maledictions of Haitian people and may he be perpetually tormented by remorse, that canker of a guilty conscience, have a sad and taciturn ending, continually gnashing his teeth, a prey to horrible hallucinations and believing himself to be always pursued by the invisible specters of those of us who have died martyrs to the cause of liberty. Like Cain may he never find a resting place upon the face of this earth and may he on his death bed eat ‘Les Excrements De Son Vase,” like the man who no longer has faith in the divine mercy. This is the fate that I wish for him and which will without failure come to him, for there exists that Heavenly justice which never forgives the crimes that have been committed against an entire nation.
