Excerpt from A Tour in Quest of Genealogy, Through Several Parts of Wales, Somersetshire, and Wiltshire, in a Series of Letters to a Friend in Dublin: Interspersed With a Description of Stourhead and Stonehenge; Together With Various Anecdotes, and Curious Fragments From a Manuscript Collection Ascribed to Shakespeare
The history of the human mind for one day, thus morally develolied, outweighs the result of a year’s modern tour, whose principal merit perhaps consists in ringing trite changes on hill and dale, wood and water, mountain and valley - subjects, after all, of confined compass, and liable to a tiresome repetition of the same images and ex pressions, even with the aid of the most Gilpin ized phraseology, or the pencil of a Sandby.
