Quotes:
One (tour) was labelled 'The Scenic Route,' and showed a broad black line extending from New York via the Water Gap, Stroudsburg, Wilkes-Barre, Scranton, Binghamton, . . . Buffalo, and Niagara Falls . . . Visions of green hills, deep valleys, winding rivers, glistering cataracts and the like leaped before my eyes.
