Behold the fowls of the air; for they sow not, neither do they reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?

And why take ye thought for raiment?

RESOLVED: _That armed intervention is not justifiable on the part of any nation to collect, on behalf of private individuals, financial claims against any American nation._[27]


First speaker--Chafee

Armed intervention for collection of private claims from any American nation is not justifiable, for

1. _It is wrong in principle_, because

(_a_) It violates the fundamental principles of international law for a very slight cause

(_b_) It is contrary to the proper function of the State, and

(_c_) It is contrary to justice, since claims are exaggerated.
