He encouraged the Filipinos to defend their fatherland until independence is secured, assuring them that at last the great American nation will acknowledge the right which is on their side. He said, "The doctrine of the great Monroe, that America is for Americans, is not forgotten, just as we affirm that Philippines are for the Filipinos."
