Greeley, however, long an ardent advocate of western expansion, was anything but a stranger to the notion of the promise of the American West, and in the New York Tribune in 1841 he wrote, “Do not lounge in the cities! There is room and health in the country, away from the crowds of idlers and imbeciles. Go west, before you are fitted for no life but that of the factory.”
