8721. UNITED STATES, Title of inhabitants.—

You have properly observed (in your book on the commerce of France and
the United States) that we can no longer be
called Anglo-Americans. That appellation
now describes only the inhabitants of Nova
Scotia, Canada, &c. I had applied that of
Federo-Americans to our citizens, as it would
not be so decent for us to assume to ourselves
the flattering appellation of free Americans.—
To M. de Warville. Washington ed. ii, 12. Ford ed., iv, 281.
