Excerpt from The History of the Lithuanian Nation: And Its Present National Aspirations
I, whom three Presidents of the United States - Mr. Roosevelt and Mr. Taft and President Wilson, have trusted to represent the American people in a little nation, that of Denmark, because both by inheritance and conviction I believed that democracy could only be true to its principles when it so applied them that these little nations might be free to develop their own culture - have a right to speak for Lithuania as a nation, and to voice the belief that, in the great reckoning which the world awaits to-day, the demand of this most oppressed of little countries shall receive the tenderest sympathy and the most practical support from her just and generous brethren, the American people.
