My Note Book. No. 1. The Trip to Margate, &c. [1/5]
The narrator recounts a journey by steam-ship, and includes a 'eulogy of steam'. The article contains a poem concerning the other travellers, beginning with the lines: 'A motley group enjoy promiscuous chat, / Whose faces prove an index to the mind; / Nor Gall nor Spurzeheim need he here consult, / In each their ruling passion may be traced' (186).
