MESSAGE RELATING TO APPROPRIATION TO

CELEBRATE THE RETURN OF ADMIRAL
DEWEY

STATE OF NEW YORK
Executive Chamber

Albany, May 24, 1899
TO THE LEGISLATURE:

I call to your attention the desirability of making an appropriation to provide for the proper celebration of the return of Admiral Dewey, an American whom all Americans worthy of the name delight to honor, the man who at the close of the nineteenth century has added fresh renown to the flag that has already so often been borne to glorious triumph on the land and on the sea. The thunder of Dewey's guns in Manila Bay raised in a moment's time the prestige of American arms throughout the world, and added a new honor to American citizenship at home and abroad; and his services throughout the trying months that followed, though less brilliant, were hardly less useful to his country. It is fitting that we should show in appropriate form the high regard we feel for the great Admiral, and for every officer and sailor of his fleet; that we should testify our appreciation of the debt under which this country lies to him and to them, and indeed to all their comrades in our forces afloat and ashore.
