As oommnudor-ln-chlef I always fol lowed the dletatoa of my best con Mlunee and the call of great national needs, I endeavor In nil elrciimstnnaeti to fulfill my duty. "Tho HMembly considers the fact Hint I do not nld It In efforts to rnlso loans, which later would compromise tho grentest financial and political in terests of Cuba, to be nn act of In subordination and of want of respect. The primary cause for tho action tnkon against mo Is my conviction that Cuba should begin the oxerolso of her own sovereignty ns a republic of union and concord, proclaimed at Monte Crlsto nnd suztninod unimpaired on tho field of battle, free from nil com promise, keeping tho nation's honor spotless. "As for the rest, ns a slncoro man, I confess I thank thorn lioooiTno they re lievo me of great political obligations and also leave mo free In return to my abandoned home, whleh during thirty years of continual strife for tho good of this eountry that I love so niueh, has been my one aspiration. Korelgn cr as I am, I did not come to serve this country by helping It to defend Its just cause ns n mercenary soldier, and correctly, since tho opprueelvo power of Spain has withdrawn, from this laud nnd left Cuba lu freedom, 1 have Bhoathed my aword, finished the mis sion which I had voluntarily Imposed upon myself.
