VÈSYON KREYOL DISKOU DESSALINES FÈ NAN OKAZYON DEKLARASYON ENDEPANDANS LAN, 1 JANVYE 1804
- Citation :
- Ah! What victims of credulity and indulgence during fourteen years—Vanquished, not by French arms, but by
the deceitful eloquence of the Proclamations of their agents.
When shall we get tired of breathing the same air with them? What have we in common with a people who commit
such cruelties? Compared to our patient moderation, their colour to ours, the extent of the seas which separate us, our
avenging clime—all tell us sufficiently that they are not our brothers—that they never will become so—and that if
they find refuge amongst us, they will still be the plotters of troubles and divisions".
Jean-Jacques Dessalines, January 1, 1804
