Moravian settlement, established here in 1746, with which a good
school is connected. The community resides in a pile of contiguous
buildings, possessing many of their goods in common, and strictly
observing the precepts of their sect. They somewhat resemble the
Quakers of England, and are remarkable for the purity and simpli-
city of their lives. Married women, widows, and young girls are
distinguished by a difference of costume. The environs are carefully
cultivated. Gardens, orchards, plantations, corn-fields, pastures,
and villas are passed in rapid succession.

Elector Palatine Frederick, King of Bohemia, who, having been banished
