Mettlesome, mad extravagant city! -- How dear to my heart are the scenes of my childhood -- Our manifest destiny to overspread the continent allotted by Providence -- Be it ever so humble, there's no place like home -- Thou, too, sail on, O Ship of State! Sail on, O Union, strong and great! --- Go forth, under the open sky, and list to nature's teachings -- America is a poem in our eyes: its ample geography dazzles the imagination -- Never was such horseflesh as in those days on Long Island or in the city -- Ev'ry prospect pleases, and only man is vile -- Index -- Acknowledgments -- Bibliography
