background information
"Papa, Papa, that Harrison boy and that Twain boy are scolding me!"
"Don't mind them, Willie; they haven't got a good, kind Papa and a nice Nursie, to tell them what to do, as you have."

Twain and ex-President Harrison holding the 'North American Review:' "Presently came the Philippine temptation.
It was strong; it was too strong, and he made that bad mistake. He played the European game, the Chamberlain game." Mark Twain.
"Let us not be a world-power in any save the good old sense -- that of a nation capable of protecting in all seas
the just rights of it's [sic] citizens, and incapable everywhere of wanton infringement of the autonomy of nations." ex-President Harrison
