Description

Excerpt from A Summer's Jaunt Across the Water, Vol. 2 of 2: Including Visits to England, Ireland, Scotland, France, Switzerland, Germany, Belgium, Etc The banks of the Rhine below our hotel are strown with huge blocks of stone for the cathedral; some lazy fellows are hoisting others by the slow process of a hand-windlass from a boat; they look as if they would go to sleep between each effort; it 'is all in character - centuries may elapse and find trees growing in the south porch at which the architect is now labouring with similar sleepy activity; he estimates the cost of finishing the nave alone at three millions of dollars.
