Oyster Bay, Sept. 15.—Following m
ihe letter oi Bresident Roosevelt to
the Cuban minister;
Oyster Bay, N. Y., Sept; 14, 1906.
My Dear Senor Quosada:
In this crisis in the affairs of the
Republic of Cuba, 1 write you not
merely because you are the minister
ol Cuba accredited to this government
but because yuu and 1 were intimate
ly drawn together at the time when
the United States intervened in the
affairs of Cuba with tiie result of
making her an independent nation.
You know how sincere my affection
and admiration and regard for Cub i
are. You know that 1 never have-
done and never shall do anything in
'reference to Cuba save with such
sincere regard lor her welfare., You
also know the pride 1 felt because it
came to me as president to with
draw the American troops from tin'
island of Cuba and officially to pro
claim her independence and to wish
her Godspeed in her career as a free
repubic. 1 desire now through yoi
to say a word of solemn warning to
your people, whose vainest well wish
er 1 am. For seven years Cuba has
been in a condition of profound peace
and of steadily growing prosperity.
For four years this peace and pros
perity have obtained under her own
independent government. Her peace,
prosperity and independence are now
menaced for of all possible evils that
can befall Cuba tlio worse is the evil
of anarchy into which civil war and
vevoutionary disturbances will as
suredly throw her. Our intervention
in Cuban affairs will only come if
Cuba herself shows that she has fall
en into the insurrectionary habit, that
she la ks the self-restraint necessary
to peaceful self-government and that
her contending factions have plunged
the country into anarchy. 1 solemn
ly adjure all Cuban patriots to band
together to sink all diff rences and
personal ambitions and to remember
that the only way they can preserve
the independence of the republic ii
prevent the necessity of outside inter
fereuce by rescuing it from the an
arehy of civil war.
Under the treaty with your govern
ment, ! as president of the Unite-l
Stakes have duly in this matter wide i
l cannot shirk. The information at
hand shows that the social bonds
throughout the island have been so re
laxed that life, proierty and indivi
dual liberty are no longer safe. 1
have received authentic information
of injury to and destruction ol Amer
ican property, it is, in my judgment
Imperative for the sake of Cuba tin .
there shall be an immediate cessa
tion of hostilities and some arrange
ment which will secure tire perraa
eneut pacification of the island.
t am sending to Havana, the sec
retary of war, Mr. Taft, and the as
sistant secretary of state, Mr. Bacon,
as the special representatives of this
government, who will render such aid
as is possible toward these ends.
Through you I desire in this way
to communicate with the Cuban gov
ernment and with the Cuban people,
and accordingly, 1 am sending you a
copy of this letter to he presented to
President Palma anil have also direct
ed immediate publication,
Siucerely yours
Theodore Roosevelt.

Cuban minister.
