Von der Höhe der Alpen (7)

»I tell you, ma’am,« said Mr. Witherden, »what I think as an honest man, which, as the poet observes, is the noblest work of God. I agree with the poet in every particular, ma’am. The mountainous Alps on the one hand, or a humming-bird on the other, is nothing, in point of workmanship, to an honest man – or woman – or woman.«
