Excerpt from Two Months Abroad, or a Trip to England, France, Baden, Prussia, and Belgium: In August and September, 1843
As we are. Detained in London, awaiting tenders for our contract, we devote the day to calls and recreation. Visit Hyde Park, a delightful promenade, and s... top for a moment at the Horse Guards, to admire the finest cavalry in the world each man a giant in proportions, in high health, and admirably equipped and mounted. Call on the cele braied engineers, Brunei and Vignolles, with letters of introduction, but regret to find they are both. In the country. Take a carriage, and call, with letters of introduction from America, on Sir Charles Morgan, Sir Henry Martyn, and Lord Ashburton but fortune is unpropitious; the former is at the point of death, the second proves to be the successor to an uncle, suddenly deceased, for whom my letter was intended, and the latter is at his country seat, near Southampton. Call upon our Minister, and obtain passports for France; rejoin my friend C and visit Westmin ster Abbey; listen to prayers and cheating.
