the United States flag, and any act
that leads to this should be stuck, up
for, not apologized for.
But a bas to all the twaddle about
the American flag on merchant ships!
It's on such because it pays, every
time. The amount of money invest

sentiment couldn't be found with a
50-inch microscope. .The Pacific
Mail had a deficit of approximately
$10,000,000 and sold out because it
got its price. It didn't ask or get
two cents for its flag.
