Excerpt from The Religio Medici and Other Writings of Sir Thomas Browne
Tns modern visitor to Norwich who has found his way through steep, winding streets or staircased alleys into the most romantic of English market-places is within a stone's throw of the spot in which the famous physician whose terceutenary East Anglia was celebrating lately spent the greater part of his long and fortunate life. Avery ordinary house, distinguished, however, with a memorial tablet, occupies the site. The garden, too, with its rareties, which Evelyn, when he visited Browne in thought a paradise, has long since disappeared. But close at hand towersthegreateastwindowofslpetermancrofhthe mag nificent church in which the median ratifies worshipped; and Old Norwich afiords not a few glimpses from crowded streets into venerable courtyards with vistas of greenery beyond, which make it easy to inagine the circamstances of his abode.
