Excerpt from Annexation of the Hawaiian Islands: Speech of Hon. Richard F. Pettigrew, of South Dakota, in the Senate of the United States, June 22 and 23, 1898
It is this cry of manifest destiny which causes the guns of Great Britain to echo daily around the world and excuses... the massacre and assassination of the weaker people of the earth. Her Opera tions in Africa she justifies by this specious plea. During the last seven years she has killed twenty or thirty thousand of the people of Africa, bombarded towns filled with women and children. And herself has lost in this unequal contest but seven men - all this in the name of manifest destiny. So colonies have been planted by the nations of Europe. They have gone forth to conquer the weaker nations of the world. But the result upon themselves has not been such as to induce us to emulate their example.
