OF THE

NATIVE INHABITANTS.

BY R. RICKARDS, ESQ.

I take goodness in this sense — the seeking the weal of men — which is
that the Grecians call phitanthropia. This, of all virtues and dignities of
the mind, is the greatest, being the character of the deity — and, without
it, man is a busy, mischievous, wretched thing — no better than a kind of
vermin. Bacon's Essays, vol. ii. p. 280.
