    There are always a number of people about these shops, who run over the paper as they stand, pay their halfpenny, and then go on. He stayed seven weeks with us, three of them in London. I have also, during this period, become acquainted with Baron Grothaus, the famous walker, to whom I had also a letter of recommendation from Baron Groote of Hambro'. His person, and his dress also, were too handsome for the character. All round, there are covered walks supported by pillars on which the name of the different commercial nations you may wish to find are written up, that among the crowd of people you may be able to find each other.

And now remember me to Biester, and farewell till I see you again. Yet he could be proud of a bit of practical wisdom drawn by himself out of the "Vicar of Wakefield," that taught him to conciliate the innkeeper by drinking with him; and the more the innkeeper drank of the ale ordered the better, because Pastor Moritz did not like it, and it did not like him. The two scenes of the Quakers and philosophers, who, with countenances full of imaginary importance, were seated at a green table with their president at their head while the secretary, with the utmost care, was making an inventory of the ridiculous presents of the Nabob, were truly laughable. One of the highest comic touches in the piece seemed to me to consist in a lie, which always became more and more enormous in the mouths of those who told it again, during the whole of the piece. The English place the accent oftener on the adjectives than they do on the substantive, which, though undoubtedly the most significant word in any sentence, has frequently less stress laid on it than you hear laid on mere epithets.

    For this reason, Moritz experienced considerable problems finding room and board, and was even run out of some villages, simply for arriving into town on foot. Directly over the altar, on two tables in large letters, the ten commandments were written. I must, however, here insert a few remarks on the elocution, or manner of speaking, of this country, which I had forgot before to write to you. I have these few days past, for want of better employment, walked through several parts of London that I had not before seen. Mary, and from the Temple Yard Hills, but how did it now sink and fall in my imagination, when I compared it with London! A paper that should be quite impartial, if that were possible, I apprehend would be deemed so insipid as to find no readers.

Schonborn has daily visited me since I have lived here; and I have always walked back half-way with him. An unintermitting violent shower of rain has driven me into the cabin, where I am now endeavouring to divert a gloomy hour by giving you Travels in England in 1782 book description of a pleasing one.

He came ready to admire, and enthusiasm adds some colour to his earliest impressions; but when they were coloured again by hard experience, the quiet living sympathy remained. I Travels in England in 1782 book ascended several steps to the great gallery, which runs on the outside of the great dome, and here I remained nearly two hours, as I could hardly, in less time, satisfy myself with the prospect of the various interesting objects that lay all round me, and which can no where be better seen, than from hence.

The great charm of this book is its unconscious expression of the writer's character. They now proceeded to relate to each other various stories, chiefly out of the Bible; not merely as important facts, but as interesting narratives, which they would have told and listened to with equal satisfaction had they met them anywhere else.

Besides this perpetual pelting from the gallery, which renders an English play-house so uncomfortable, there is no end to their calling Travels in England in 1782 book and knocking with their sticks till the curtain is drawn up.

The squares, moreover, are not nearly so crowded or so populous as the streets and the other parts of the city. And here I have been waiting these eight days, and the wind still continues contrary for Hambro'; though I do now most heartily wish for a fair wind, as I can no longer make any improvement by my stay, since I must keep myself in constant readiness to embark whenever the wind changes; and therefore I dare go no great distance.
