Description

Excerpt from Political Essay on the Kingdom of New Spain, Vol. 1: Containing Researches Relative to the Geography of Mexico, the Extent of Its Surface and Its Political Division Into Intendancies, the Physical Aspect of the Country, the Population, the State of Agriculture and Manufacturing and Commercial Industry

The eagerness. With which the public have always received the accounts of tra vallers has naturally contributed to their multiplication. It is to be regretted, how ever, that this eagerness is too frequently so indiscriminate that almost nothing is so very insipid that it will not be devoured in the shape of travels. Hence the numerous productions which have appeared of late without adding any thing to our stock of information. No individual 'now who has left the bounds of our own island, hesitates a moment about the qualifications neces sary for his appearance before the public at his return. His previous education, his means of access to proper sources of ih formation, and his leisure to acquire it, are objects of inferior concern. He has travelled, and that is enough.
