Excerpt from The Creighton Chronicle, Vol. 6: March 20, 1915

England hath in it twenty and six cities, of which the chiefest is named London, a place for the beauty of buildings, infinite riches, variety of all things, that excelleth all the cities in the world; insomuch that it may be called the store-house and mart of all Europe. Close by this city runneth the famous river called the Thames. X' if it What can there be in any place under the heavens, that is not in this noble city, either to be bought or borrowed.

It hath divers hospitals for the relieving of the poor, six score fair churches for divin'e services, a glorious Burse, which they call the Royal Exchange, for the meeting of the merchants of all the countries where any traffic is to be had. And among all the strange and beautiful shows, me thinketh there is none so notable as the bridge which crosses the Thames, which is in manner of a continual street, well replenished with large and stately houses on both sides, and situated upon twenty arches, whereof each one is made of excellent free-stone squared, everyone of them being three-score foot in height and fully twenty in distance from another.

To this place the whole realm hath his recourse, whereby it seemeth so populous that one would scarce think so many peo ple to be in the whole island, as he shall see sometimes in Lon don.
