This is one of the most inspiring articles ever written. I have compiled it here along with the original forewords by the author, Elbert Hubbard, as well as a short biography about the main character of the story – Andrew Summers Rowan. It was written in 1899 and some of the vocabulary may be lost on a contemporary reader, so I have provided a glossary at the end.

Andrew Summers Rowan also wrote an article himself of his entire journey to deliver the President’s message to General Garcia in Cuba. You can read it here: Rowan’s own account
