Excerpt from In and Out of London: Or the Half-Holidays of a Town Clerk
I have endeavoured, in these pages, to describe a few Of the places which may be thus visited. Some Of them are in town, some in the country, but all are within easy reach. And many places remain Of which... , though they are within the limit of an afternoon, I have said nothing. Such are Lambeth and the Tower, Westminster and St. Paul's, and many others within the town; while, a short way out, Windsor and Eltham, King's Langley and Chertsey, Hatfield, and a hundred more would have been accessible. But I am not writing a guide-book, and have selected my subjects rather on the princi ple that no place near London is SO uninteresting that something may not be found in its history, or its situation, or its buildings, worth thinking over.
