"Their notions of virtue and vice are very different from the civilized part of Mankind. They think it a most sublime virtue to pay servile and abject obedience to the commands of the Chieftains, although in opposition to their Sovereign and the laws of their Kingdom, and to encourage this, their fidelity, they are treated by their Chiefs with great familiarity, they partake with them in their 'diversions' and shake them by the hand whenever they meet them"
