Catalogue Note

Loyalty oath to the provisional government. Testimony to the turbulent period after the overthrow of the monarchy (17 January 1893), the provisional government in early 1894 announced a constitutional convention to be held the coming May. They appointed nineteen delegates to this convention, and called for eighteen more to be chosen by popular election. A loyalty oath was required of anyone wishing to vote in this election; only about 4,000 men, mostly of foreign birth, signed the oath and voted in the election. This and other acts of the Provisional Government were considered illegal by President Cleveland, though U.S. Minister Albert Willis immediately recognized the new government announced 4 July.
