From The Thames To The Tiber

J. Wardle

London: Its teeming millions of population: Its commercial aspect: Leaving Victoria Station for New Haven: On the Boat: New found friends: Landing at Dieppe: Leaving for Paris: Rouen, its Cathedral, etc. We had settled to have a holiday-not a mere pic-nic, not a week-end at Blackpool, or a tour of a few days in the Isle of Man-but a real first-class, out-and-out trip. Where then is it to be? Why, to Rome and back, came the reply. From St. Paul's in London, the largest city in the world, to St. Peter's in Rome, one of the great cities of the ancient world. "To Rome!" my friends said in astonishment. "Yes! to Rome." There seems to be magic in the very word. Rome-The Eternal City. The city of the seven hills. The city of which St. Paul was proud to be a citizen. See Acts, chapter 22, verse 25. "Is it lawful for you to scourge a man that is a Roman, uncondemned?" verse 28. "Then the Chief Captain came and said unto him. Tell me, art thou a Roman?" He said, "Yes."London: Its teeming millions of population: Its commercial aspect: Leaving Victoria Station for New Haven: On the Boat: New found friends: Landing at Dieppe: Leaving for Paris: Rouen, its Cathedral, etc. We had settled to have a holiday-not a mere pic-nic, not a week-end at Blackpool, or a tour of a few days in the Isle of Man-but a real first-class, out-and-out trip.
