It Seems To Me That Such A Man Must Feel Himself Half A God, If He Has The Power Of Comparing What He Is With What He Was.

It is right that all this should be acknowledged by us.

When we speak of America and of her institutions, we should remember that she has given to our increasing population rights and privileges which we could not give - which as an old country we probably can never give. That self-asserting, obtrusive independence which so often wounds us is, if viewed aright, but an outward sign of those good things which a new country has produced for its people. Men and women do not beg in the States; they do not offend you with tattered rags; they do not complain to heaven of starvation; they do not crouch to the ground for half-pence. If poor, they are not abject in their poverty. They read and write. They walk like human beings made in God's form. They know that they are men and women, owing it to themselves and to the world that they should earn their bread by their labor, but feeling that when earned it is their own. If this be so, if it be acknowledged that it is so, should not such knowledge in itself be sufficient testimony of the success of the country and of her institutions?
