Opis: America's Godfather - Johnson Virginia W.
Excerpt from America's Godfather: The Florentine Gentleman
The young American traveller arrives in Florence from Pisa, and drives in the prosaic modern omnibus to the Hotel Washington on the Arno bank, where he intends to stay for a fortnight.
He is the child of the nineteenth century. All the possibilities of a wonderful development of good and evil in the future of a new world rest with him. Does he realize the responsibilities of his destiny In personal appearance he is slight, active, and a trifle pale of complexion, yet he possesses a wiry strength of nerve and muscle which will carry him far on occasion. He is the first fruit of civilisation. Will he retain the soundness of upright principle of his Puritan forefathers, while tempering a certain sharpness of look and manner with the amiable consideration of others, in travel, which forms two-thirds of the value of Christianity
