though I was bom and roared in vdiio
I waa supposed to be an Englishman.
Had I given out that l was a straight
haired Yankee the chances of being
moblad or knifed or sled, would have
been excellent. The feeling against
Americans was so very bitter that one
from the States was liable to insult and
violence on the publie stroet?.

I made theh acquaintance the first day
they landed, and I felt it my duty to
warn Whitley of the feeling entertained
against our nationality. My advice t<>
lum was to keep close for a time und t<>
carefully avoid being mixed up in any
discussion of a public nature, lie ha I
been there a week without anything br
ing saitl to him, win n one day, as we
sat in the hotel reading room, a couple
of Cubans who spoke v. ry good English
came in and toe di seat.- near us. Then
was no donbt in my mind from thc firs!
that they meant tu draw Whitby int.' a
trap. Tiny began by abusing and
maligning Americans and wishing fur
war, and when he persistently refused to
take notice ol them ? nu of them deliber
ately turned upon him and said:
"tlavaiia is U0 pince for such as you."
"Thc gentleman is an invalid," 1 re
"But he is also a Yankee." continued
thc Cuban. '"Our Government should

"All Yankees are cowards! I insult
you! Demand satisfaction if you dare!"
"I do demand it!" answered Whitb y,
in a low voice. "You evidently want a
duel! You shall have it'.''"
"Good!" hissed the other. "My friend
here will arrange tho details with your

thought f? >r."
Ile walked away with a nod to me, and
was followed by bis friend, who promised
to return in half an hour.
"You can t mean to light him?" I in
quired of Whitb y when we were alone.
"But I do. UL- insulted me as an
American, hoping to provoke a duel,
and as an American I will light him."
"But your health"/"

is to keep the affair from my wife until
