Excerpt from Letters on England In writing the letters that follow, I thought less of making a book, than of recalling to mind the impressions, which my observation of the public manners of England, and the conversation of those Englishmen, who houred me with their friendship, made on me. These letters are, for the most part, two years old: reflections on the recent measures of the present ministers, of course, are t to be expected in them. Neither have I entered into the foreign politics of England: such was t the object of this correspondence. But had I had this object in view, I should equally have pursued the course I have adopted; and have begun by giving some idea of the internal organization of the country, and of the opinions it naturally produces. Most of the errors habitually committed respecting England, arise from our reasoning on its politics as we should on those of Austria or Russia.
