"A colony so founded would fairly represent English society, and every new comer would have his own class to fall into; and to whatever class he belonged, he would find his relation to the others, and the support derived from the others, much the same as in the parent country. There would then be little more in Van Diemen's Land, or in Canada, revolting to the habits and feelings of an emigrant, than if he had merely shifted his residence from Sussex to Cumberland or Devonshire-little more than a change of natural scenery." —Archbishop Whately.

“ Colonization, as hitherto conducted, may be likened to the building of a bridge; a work no part of which is complete until the whole be completed. According to the method here proposed, colonization would be like the making of a tunnel; a work in the progress of which each step must be complete before another step can be taken."-England and America.
