3615. HAMILTON (Alexander), Anglo-maniac.—

His mind was really powerful, but
chained by native partialities to everything
English. He had formed exaggerated ideas of
the superior perfection of the English constitution,
the superior wisdom of their government,
and sincerely believed it for the good of this
country to make them its model in everything;
without considering that what might be wise
and good for a nation essentially commercial,
and entangled in complicated intercourse with
numerous and powerful neighbors, might not be
so for one essentially agricultural, and insulated
by nature from the abusive governments
of the old world.—
To William H. Crawford. Washington ed. vii, 6. Ford ed., x, 34.
(M. 1816)
