Burn down your cities and leave our farms, and your cities will spring up again as if by magic; but destroy our farms and the grass will grow in the streets of every city in the country. We will answer their demand for a gold standard by saying to them: You shall not press down upon the brow of labor this crown of thorns, you shall not crucify mankind upon a cross of gold.

    quema tus ciudades y abandona nuestras granjas, y tus ciudades volverán a surgir como por arte de magia; pero destruye nuestras granjas y la hierba crecerá en las calles de todas las ciudades del país. responderemos a su demanda de un patrón de oro diciéndoles: no presione sobre la frente de labor esta corona de espinas, no crucificará a la humanidad sobre una cruz de oro.
