Excerpt from Walks in Florence, Vol. 1 of 2
In the following pages we hope to awaken a more lively interest in these buildings and their contents, as well as in the men who, under a free government and plebeian rulers, not only counted among their fellow-citizens some of the ... most eminent poets, philosophers, and artists the world has ever known, but no less eminent patriots, legislators, and rerormers in morals and religion. A people who have pro duced such fruits, need but higher moral and intellectual culture to yield a still more abundant harvest.
