An epistle to posterity; by Mary Elizabeth Wilson Sherwood, 1826-1903
Publication date 1897
It has been a perpetual pleasure to me to see luxury march on with giant tread; to watch the great city of New York grow; to welcome art and beauty into our houses; to see the statues and the buildings improve in every decade. It has even been a pleasure (the sure accompaniment of advancing years) to say, "Oh, we had greater geniuses on the stage and in the forum, and greater beauties at the
baUs, in the old time!"
Suggest and discuss books to read (all languages welcome!)
