SECRETARY TO THE MISSION.

"The glimmerings which reach us from South America, enable us only to see
that its inhabitants are held under the accumulated pressure of slavery, super-
stition, and ignorance. Whenever they shall be able to rise under this weight,
and to show themselves to the rest of the world, they will probably show that
they are like the rest of the world.”—JEFFERSON'S NOTES ON VIRGINIA.
