A European:

I not only felt myself quite easy with these new

countrymen, but relished their society and manners.

I no longer looked upon them as spirits, but as men

superior to us; and therefore I had the stronger desire

to resemble them, to imbibe their spirit, and imitate

their manners. I therefore embraced every occasion

of improvement, and every new thing that I observed

I treasured up in my memory (72).
