sameAs="U.S.S. Maine (Battleship)">"The State of Maine,"</name> warship U.S.A. lying in
<name type="place" sameAs="Havana, Cuba">Havana harbor, Cuba,</name> has been blown up.
100 people are rumored to be done for. We suspect the Spaniards as they have written
dreadfully insulting things of our Government; that <name type="person"
sameAs="McKinley, William">McKinley</name> is a jingo, &amp; no good, &amp; all that rot.
I should feel very badly if a war came on. I wish it might be settled by "arbitration." I
don't think we could stand a <name type="event" sameAs="Spanish-American War">war</name>
very well after being under <name type="person" sameAs="Cleveland, Grover">Grover
Cleveland</name> for 4 years. We sang "4 years more of Grover" with great gusto till last
March. But the Spaniards need annihilating anyhow. There are more awful accounts of their
cruelty to the Cubans in the papers.</p>
