In praise of Ohio, "which has raised itself, in the space of about thirty years, from nothing, to a great and flourishing State." Its inhabitants "are remarkable for their love of liberty, their hatred of slavery and all intolerance and persecution." Indeed, the primary motivation for its first settlers was "to locate themselves where slavery was never to pollute the land." He celebrates the vigor, growth, commerce, and civic life of the State. Thomson calls it "a general eulogy of the State," but complains that Atwater lays it on a little thick.
