Trade History cited.
The experiences of the past among
nations have taught us that the at
tempt by one nation to punish another
by exclusive and discriminatory trade
agreements has been a prolific breeder
of that kind of antagonism which often
times results in war, and that If a per
manent policy is to be established
among nations, every obstacle that has
stood in the way of international
friendship should be cast aside.
It was with that fundamental pur
pose in mind that I announced this
principle in my address or January s.
To pervert this great principle for par
tisan purposes, and to inject the bogey
of free trade, which is not involved at

the nation from the broad and humane
principle of a durable peace. by intro
ducing an internal question of quite
another kind.

been unaffected by a policy of the kind
