“Where is the unexplored land but in our own untried enterprises? To an adventurous spirit any placeLondon, New York, Worcester, or his own yardis unexplored land, to seek which Frémont and Kane travel so far. To a sluggish and defeated spirit even the Great Basin and the Polaris are trivial places.”
