From Anthony Trollope's North America

"We landed at Alexandria, and saw as melancholy and miserable a town as the mind of man can conceive."

"I know no place at which an Englishman may drop down suddenly among a pleasanter circle of acquaintance, or find himself with a more clever set of men, than he can do at Boston."

"Over and beyond the grain elevators there is nothing specially worthy of remark at Buffalo."

"Chicago is in many respects the most remarkable city among all the remarkable cities of the Union."

"At Dubuque in Iowa, I ate the best apple that I ever encountered."

"Taken altogether, Washington as a city is most unsatisfactory, and falls more grievously short of the thing attempted than any other of the great undertakings of which I have seen anything in the United States."
