Excerpt from Archaeologia AEliana, or Miscellaneous Tracts Relating to Antiquity, Vol. 5
Dr. Whitaker was greatly Struck by the beauties of the scenery, and describes them with all that charming gracefulness of diction which more than atones for his inaccuracies and deficiencies as an historian. And he might well admire them. On the hills above you have the wildest country, moss and moor, upon which the hand of cultivation has made but little progress; but in the vallies that run among them there is the most luxuriant verdure. They remind you strikingly of the little vallies, bright with the richest green, that run up to the stony bases of the Alps, or of the friths and straths that you may see among the Scottish moun tains. At Marske, however, the woods with which the hills are crowned enhance the beauty of the landscape, and give a grace which you may look for in vainin Italy andin Scotland. Nature is here most lavish of her beauties: the inequalities of the ground give her constant opportuni ties of displaying them, and at every turn you have something to attract the fancy and please the eye.
