Those persons who have been spend?

studying ways and means by which the
distinguished approbation and affection
of General Ramony Blanco might be
gained for the American people and for
American things, will be pained and
grieved to read the following harsh and
cruel Interview, which that courteous
gentleman and bold warrior cheerily

he is willing that his friends should

Is no trouble to sing the praises of gas
for fuel and as for light, its beauty
shines so he who runs may be impress
