Recollections of Early Illinois and Her Noted Men

Excerpt from Recollections of Early Illinois and Her Noted Men: Read Before the Chicago Historical Society, March 16th, 1880 The French maintained amicable relations with the Indians, while no Indians were permitted to live in the neighborhood of these Americans. The Frenchman had more humanity, greater sense of justice, and stronger social feeling, than the American; but he was not so self-reliant. He had either lost his individu ality, or never had any, whilst that of the American became over weening; and to the lack of this quality may be attributed the comparative incapacity of the French for successful colonization. While, on the other hand, the Americans thrive and grow beyond anything the world has ever known. They swallow up and assim ilate everything that comes within the sphere of their in uence. Anybody but the Indian and the Chinese may come in, but he must Americanize; that is, things must go on American fash ion. Our laws, our language, and our institutions must prevail. We will not tolerate any class within our sphere who is not 0 us in all these respects. Those who try to adopt our customs, learn our language, and profess to reverence our Constitution and form of Government, and become naturalized, we receive with open arms; but woe betide the luckless Wight who wears a pig-tail' and blouse, and professes to take no interest in our Government, and arranges to have his bones transferred to the land of his birth for burial.
