Excerpt from Importance of Spanish to the American Citizen

The United States has always been able to boast that some of its prominent men were actively interested in Spain. This has effectively prevented the public in general from losing entirely its interest in the Iberian Peninsula. We can point in our early days to Washington Irving, who, while United States Minister at Madrid, took occasion to steep himself in the romantic legends of early Spain and gave us not only his Conquest of Granada, but something artistically much more important, his beautiful Tales of the Alhambra. These legends, curiously enough, had never before gotten into print in any language. The Spaniards themselves appreciate Irving's interest in these legends and were the first to recognize the service he had done them in thus calling attention hereto.
