8715. UNITED STATES, Praise for.—

There is not a country on earth where there
is greater tranquillity; where the laws are
milder, or better obeyed; where every one is
more attentive to his own business or meddles
less with that of others; where strangers
are better received, more hospitably treated,
and with a more sacred respect.—
To Mrs. Cosway. Washington ed. ii, 36. Ford ed., iv, 316.
(P. 1786)
