The red man of the forest was formerly a very respectful person. At the time Chris. arrove on these shores, the savages was virtuous and happy. They were innocent of secession, rum, draw-poker, and sinfulness generally. They had no Congress, faro banks, delirium tremens, or Associated Press. Their habits was consequently good. Late suppers, dyspepsy, gas companies, thieves, ward politicians, pretty waiter-girls, and other metropolitan refinements, were unknown among them. No savage in good standing would take postage-stamps. The female aborigine never died of consumption, because she didn’t tie her waist up in whalebone things; but in loose and flowing garments she bounded, with naked feet, over hills and plains like the wild and frisky antelope. It was an unlucky moment for us when Chris. set his foot onto these here shores. It would have been better for us of the present day if the Indians had given him a warm meal and sent him home. For the savages owned the country, and Columbus was a fillibuster. Cortez, Pizarro, and Walker were one-horse fillibusters—Columbus was a four-horse team fillibuster, and a large yellow dog under the wagon. I say, in view of the mess we are making of things, it would have been better for us if Columbus had stayed to home. ~Artemus Ward (Charles Farrar Brown), “The Noble Red Man,” in Vanity Fair, 1862 October 11th [a little altered —tεᖇᖇ¡·g]
