Portugal has not always been the
small affair that it is today. The
little country once meant a great
deal more than It does at present.
To Portugal belongs the honor of
having been the leader in fifteenth
century exploration and discovery.
Her great prince, known as “Henry
the Navigator,” may well be called
the father of deep sea navigation.
It was owing to his zeal that the
voyages began which were to end in
the circumnavigation of Africa and
the finding of the way to India. U n­

sessions and was not without great

if I did get elected I couldn’t fill
the position properly. And if I did
fill it properly I wouldn’t get much
credit for it anyhow.”— Washington
