Abstract by the author:

Washington in the District of Columbia, the seat of the Government of the United States, is not yet 100 years old and, according to the census, counts 215,000 inhabitants. On 18 September 1793 President Washington himself laid the cornerstone of the Capitol, and in the year 1800 the seat of government was moved from Philadelphia to there. Most of the some 150 Swiss living here [in 1887] are either officials of the United States or the Swiss Embassy, and but a few are engaged in business.
