Description

Excerpt from The Works of Washington Irving, Vol. 1 of 12: The Alhambra, And, Bracebridge Hall IN the spring of 1829, the author of this work, whom curiosity had brought into Spain, made a rambling expedition from Seville to Granada in company with a friend, a member of the Russian Embassy at Madrid. Accident had thrown us together from distant regions of the globe, and a similarity of taste led us to wander together among the romantic mountains of Auda lusia. Should these pages meet his eye, wherever thrown by the duties of his station, whether mingling in the pageantry of courts, or meditating on the truer glories of nature, may they recall the scenes of our adventurous companionship, and with them the re collection of one, in whom neither time nor distance will oblite rate the remembrance of his gentleness and worth.'
