Excerpt from Essays and Lectures on Indian Historical Subjects The impression, I believe, very generally prevails, that a Native State, that is, a State administered and governed solely by Natives, must necessarily be ill governed; that the vices of lying, of corruption, and of venality, must flourish in it to a considerable, even to an alarming, extent. Whether such a state of things actually exist or not, it is nevertheless certain that its existence is taken for granted. The mis-government and corruption of Native States, the effeminacy, the sloth, the immorality, the untrustworthiness of their rulers, have formed the text for many a homily, and the pretext for a great deal of "sanctimonious rhetoric."
