PITHY QUOTE FROM Chawton House Travel Writings

Open quotes
The apparent deadness of the Campagna, during the season when travellers cross it, the scanty population, whose habits and manners savour an older world, the wall of ruin that surrounds every thing that is new and fresh in Rome, force the thoughts back upon the past, and veil the present, as the future, from our eyes.
