men and women of America with whom I have
become acquainted during my pilgrimage through the
land; about those men so simple, so gentle, but
yet so strong without any pretension, so manly in
their activity as citizens, husbands, fathers,
friends; of those women, so kind, so motherly, so
gentle in manner, so steadfast in principle, resting
in the truth like flowers in the sunshine; of those
homes, those happy, beautiful homes, in which I
have been a happy guest for days, and weeks, and
months; for my life in America has been, and is,
a journey of familiar visits to homes which have
opened themselves to me in every state throughout
America, and where I have lived, not as a stranger,
but as a sister with brothers and sisters, conversing
openly with them on all subjects, as people may
converse in heaven. I there met with more than
I have words to tell, of true Christian life, of the
love of truth, of kindness, of minds earnest for
and receptive of everything which is great and
good in humanity;, while my acquaintance with
some beautiful, peculiar characters will serve as a
guide to my soul forever. Nor have I anywhere
met with more hospitality, or with a more abounding
cordiality. And if I were to seek for one
expression which would portray the peculiar
character of the people of the New World, I could not
find any other that of beautiful human beings.
