Excerpt from The Mysteries of the Court of London, Vol. 7
IN George Street, leading into Hanover Square, stands St. George's Church, which is the most fashionable temple of Hymen within the precincts of the metropolis. It is aristocratic in appearance as well as by repute, no... t even the sanctity of religion and the meekness of the Christian faith having been able to rescue it from the intrusive pomp, ostentation, and vain parade of the frivolous, heartless, and empty-headed upper classes. The panels in front of the galleries are emblazoned with the names of the noble lords, right honourables, and honourables, who have from time to time filled the office of churchwardens; the decorations of the pews Show that they are intended for the ease and comfort of the higher orders; and the general aspect of the interior is eminently fashionable.
