This has been an exciting week for Cuban matters.
We told you that we might expect to hear more from Mr. Taylor's article

Madrid papers, in which he said that when Mr. Taylor was minister to

put an end to the war, which was costing this country so much from

convinced that Cuba would never yield, but would fight till her last
drop of blood had been spilled.
