My policy has been, and will continue to be, while I have the honor to remain in the administration of the government, to be upon friendly terms with, but independent of, all the nations of the earth. To share in the broils of none. To fulfil our own engagements. To supply the wants, and be carriers for them all: Being thoroughly convinced that it is our policy and interest to do so.

    كانت سياستي ، وستظل كذلك ، بينما يشرفني أن أبقى في إدارة الحكومة ، أن أكون على علاقات ودية مع جميع دول الأرض ، ولكن مستقلة عنها. أن أشترك في مشاوي لا شيء. للوفاء بالتزاماتنا. لتوفير الاحتياجات ، وأن نكون ناقلين لها جميعًا: الاقتناع التام بأن سياستنا ومصلحتنا هي القيام بذلك.
