An Englishman's view of the Prince's visit to America.
An Englishman, traveling in this country during the visit of the Prince
, writes to the London Times
a sensible letter, which clearly indicates the impression made upon the intelligent gentlemen of that country by the recent visit and reception of the Prince
The writer speaks of the cordiality, the earnestness, the hearty good nature everywhere displayed, and declares that it is ‘"really impossible to estimate the injury done to England by those who have written travels in this country.
"’ It has been the misfortune of both England
and the United States
that none but the most supercilious and superficial tourists have until lately visited America
; men, who were in general not only of bad manners, but worse principles, never hesitating to invent a calumny upon our people and institutions whenever it suited their purpose.
Now, that the representatives of the highest social and official rank and intelligence have visited the United States
, and had some opportunity of forming a correct opinion, we think that we are safe in predicting that the race of mendacious cockney tourists will soon come to an end.
