  9. Originally the Germanic race: the German peoples generally: now only applied to the people of Holland. "The word comes from theod, people or nation; each nation, of course, thinking itself the people or nation above all others. And the opposite to Dutch is Welsh-that is, strange, from wealh, a stranger. In our forefathers' way of speaking, whatever they could understand was Dutch, the tongue of the people, whatever they could not understand they called Welsh, the tongue of the stranger. 'All lands, Dutch and Welsh,' is a common phrase to express the whole world. This is the reason why, when our forefathers came into Britain, they called the people whom they found on the land the Welsh. For the same reason, the Teutons on the Continent have always called the Latin-speaking nations with whom they have had to do-Italian, Provencal, and French-Welsh. People who know only the modern use of the words might be puzzled if they turned to some of the old Swiss chronicles, and found the war between the Swiss and Duke Charles of Burgundy always spoken of as a war between the Dutch and the Welsh. Any one who knows German will be at once ready with instances of this use of the word, sometimes meaning strange, or foreign in the general sense, sometimes meaning particularly French or Italian. The last case which I know of the word being used in England in the wide sense is in Sir Thomas Smith's book on the Government of England, written in the time of Queen Elizabeth, where he speaks of 'such as be walsh and foreign,' not meaning Britons in particular, but any people whose tongue cannot be understood."-E.A.

  19. The chief settlements of the Dutch in the American colonies were in New Netherland, now New York and the adjoining part of New Jersey. They were successful in commerce and industrious in agriculture, but indifferent to politics. Probably at the time of the Revolution more than half of the population of the State were of Dutch descent, and Dutch was still spoken in the villages along the Hudson in the earlier years of this century. Of late, efforts have been made to prove that the chief influence in the formation of American institutions was Dutch rather than English, that for instance the ideas of a written constitution, the ballot, freedom of religion, democracy, equal partition of the goods of an intestate, the recording of deeds by the State, and free schools, were derived from Dutch example. In the case of most of these claims, it must be said that they are still quite unproved. It is true that the Netherland Republic was in 1620 far in advance of England in respect to freedom, institutional development and general civilization, and that it was then in close association with England, and that the Pilgrim Fathers and some other colonists were well acquainted with the life of the Dutch. In the case of free schools, registration of deeds and the laws of succession, and a few other particulars, a probability of Dutch influence has been shown. But in the case of the fundamentals of American constitutional life, the new theory not only has not been proved, but is in most respects highly improbable. Dictionary of United States history
