Excerpt from The Nation, Vol. 71: A Weekly Journal Devoted to Politics, Literature, Science and Art; From July 1, 1900, to December 31, 1900
New modes of locomotion call for a new class of guide-books. Miss Katharine M. Abbott, who began by showing what trolley trips were possible and interesting on the New England coast, from and to Boston, has now undertaken the same service for the District of Columbia, and publishes, through G. P. Putnam's Sons, an illustrated pocket volume entitled 'trolley Trips in. And about Fascinating Washington.' The epen electric conveyance is thus made to conduct the stranger confidently to the chief sights of a city in the shortest possible time, with a minimum of fatigue and of expense. A map makes the routes easily comprehended in advance. And is an added insurance against getting lost.
