As to other ( than English ) foreigners, it is thought better to discourage their settling together in large masses, wherein, as in our German settlements, they preserve for a long time their own languages, habits and principles of government, and that they should distribute themselves sparsely among the natives for quicker amalgamation. English emigrants are without this inconvenience. They differ from us little but in their principles of government, and most of those ( merchants excepted ) who come here, are sufficiently disposed to adopt ours.

– Thomas Jefferson
