Tour Edinburgh

Throned on crags, Edinburgh takes every eye; and not
content with supremacy in beauty, she claims an
intellectual supremacy also. She is a patrician amongst
British cities, "A penniless lass with a l0ng pedigree. She
has wit if she lacks wealth: she counts great men against
millionaires. The success of the actor is insecure until
thereunto Edinburgh has set her seal. The poet trembles
before the Edinburgh critics. The singer respects the
delicacy of the Edinburgh ear. Coarse London may roar
with applause: fastidious Edinburgh sniffs disdain, and
sneers reputation away. London is the stomach of the
empire; Edinburgh the quick, subtle, darting brain.
Edinburgh by Alexander Smith. Tour Edinburgh.
