At Edinburgh for my first time! A wonderful place witn all that a town should have, in compactness and completeness unmatched — a perfect ideal of a city! Romantic site of hill and vale — fine buildings and monuments mediaeval and modern; palace and castle; antiquated gloomy wynds and closes and lofty houses towering up like cliffs, dotted with windows like loopholes; all teeming with associations, historical, poetical, scientific — national and individual — heroic, tragic, comic, quaint, terrible or humorous; all in their appropriate places. — Alfred Domett
