HAWAIIANS EMPHATICALLY OPPOSED TO ANNEXATION.
|As president of the Hawaiian Patriotic League of the Hawaiian Islands, I honestly assert from an intimate knowledge of the Hawaiian people that they, men and women, as a race and nation, are emphatically opposed to the annexation of Hawaii to the United States of America or to any other nation.
