Excerpt from An American Visitor
So that the young man, far from enjoying a holiday, had spent one of the most exhausting and miserable days in his life trying to prevent a riot which was obviously inevitable, a task so depressing to him that even some of the natives, in the midst of their own troubles. Were amused by his lugubrious perspiring features, as he pushed here and there among them.
And Gore, on his part, as he climbed the bank for the fiftieth time after holding court of pie powder between three screaming women armed with each other's faggots, thought he had never seen so many miserable, worried people together, not even in the largest and richest capitals.
