    As a frequent visitor to these shores, the author observes that since the melodious days of '"merry England" [...] you have become an industrious, laborious people [...] the locomotive rattles on your rails, the steam-engine pants in your factories, the steam-hammer clangs; so when I see the people on a Saturday night pouring forth from these workshops [...] I fully understand that song has left them' (514–15). Also notes that the 'chemist' father of the famous Norwegian musician Ole B Bull was 'a pupil of the celebrated chemist, Trommsdorff' (515).
