Excerpt from The World and Its People, Vol. 12: Porto Rico: The Land of the Rich Port

During a brief period of time, now regarded as forming an epoch in American history, Porto Rico came into prominence as an important. Section of the island-world. Although it lies nearer to the United States than to any other of the great republics or empires of the globe, it was comparatively unknown to the American people. We knew its location, but not its physical features; its people, but not their domestic life, their daily tasks and pursuits. We regarded this fertile island as permanently allied with a European power, with no thought of possessing it ourselves. We had come to think of this Republic of ours as always to be confined Within continental boun darics, and not at all likely to embrace in her territory insular lands.

Five years ago our acquaintance with Porto Rico was of that general character as now marks our knowl edge oi Madagascar, Sumatra, or Borneo; it lacked definite detail.
