THE NIGHT SIDE OF LONDON
J EWING RITCHIE
AUTHOR OF THE "LONDON PULPIT," ETC.
"In cities vice is hidden with most ease,
Or seen with least reproach.
* * *
I do confess them nurseries of the arts.
* * *
Such London is, by taste and wealth proclaim'd
The fairest capital of all the world,
By riot and incontinence the worst."
