Excerpt from America's Foreign Relations, Vol. 1 of 2
It would be a grateful and beneficent achievement to inspire the American people with a more adequate and accurate con ception of their real place in the world and of their true rela tionship with other nations. The result should be to ameliorate international sentiments; to moderate both excessive attach ments and excessive animosities into a spirit of benevolent im partiality; to unify the sympathies, the policies and the action of all domestic parties toward the external world; and to invest our popular attitude toward other peeples and their governments with a dignity and a benignity worthy of a nation that is well proportioned and judicious in all its greatness. If I shall suc ceed in doing this to a perceptible extent, the purpose of my labors in this book will be fulfilled.
