    Excerpt from A Visit to Sunnyside in the Life Time of the Father of American Literature

    Anything relating to washington Irving is interesting to thinking minds of all professions.

    The needle does not more naturally vibrate to the pole than mankind desire to pay their devotions at the shrine of those once conspicuous in the various departments of life. Hence, the zeal, though misguided, to visit the birth and burial place of Mohammed, as well as the romantic banks of Avon, where once nature's great poet sang.

    Long were we anxious to pay our respects to the Father of American Literature. Early one morning some years since, and while the sun ushered in one of the most lovely days of the year, we walked from Sing Sing to Tarrytown.

    How enchanting the scenery along the banks of the Hudson. There nature, taste and wealth combine to perfect the beauty of the landscape.

    The charms of this region also, are heightened from the many historic associations that cluster along the scene.

    To the tourist, the banks of the Rhine are visited in anticipa tion of much delight from gazing on the castellated summits, hoary with age, but he finds that they have lost that freshness that greets the eye while surveying the lofty eminences covered with every variety of trees, the crystal cascades, the verdant lawns, the splendid mansions encircled with gardens, replete with. All the varieties that the vegetable and ¿oral kingdoms afford, as displayed along the bank of this noble stream.

    If the Moors fancied Valencia, on account of its prominent beauty, was immediately under Heaven, who would not indulge as well a grounded supposition in favor of its locality over the scenery in this quarter?
