Description

Excerpt from Notes on Public Subjects Made During a Tour in the United States and in Canada I left England on the 2nd Of August and landed again on the 2nd of December. I was consequently absent four months, of which I spent fourteen weeks on that continent - a brief stay, indeed, and one which the most kind and warm hearted hospitality made me feel to be still shorter; but the facilities Of travelling are such that little time is lost in mere locomotion. With the exception of 150 miles in Pennsylvania, and 250 in Upper Canada, for which I pre ferred hired carriages, for the sake of stopping at certain points (in some parts Of these routes there was no other conveyance), nearly the'whole of the rest bf the tour above indicated was per formed by railways or in steamboats, with a rapidity that greatly economises the available time of the traveller.
