Excerpt from The Juvenile Tourist, or Excursions Into the West of England, Into the Midland Counties, With Part of South Wales, and Into the Whole County of Kent, Concluding With an Account of Maidstone and Its Vicinity: Interspersed With Historical Anecdotes and Poetical Extracts, for the Rising Generation

The metropolis of a nation is the heart of the body politic, whence the purple streams of life flow in a thousand different ramifications to the remotest extremities of the Empire. Hence a miniature sketch Of london forms no im proper introduction to a volume whose contents exhibit some of the fairest portions of the United Kingdom of Great Britain. SO delectable a re gion would lead the traveller to imagine that its Metropolis, enrich ed by the liberal ity of nature and of art, must for extent and grandeur vie with the other capitals of the nations of the earth.
