Excerpt from Old Shorter Houses and Gardens

If you' pause, bewildered, at each beckoning path, the whole garden, beneath the weight of a century, assumes the air of repose, of age; it no longer pleads: it commands. But through the gardens is heard the echo of a ponderous coach as it draws up at White Hall in a Seventeenth Century May. A coach of that day made a stir through London streets, and as the arrival of this particular coach was attended by a great deal of state, a piquant memoir could, no doubt, have its beginning the very moment the short ight of steps is lowered by the footmen. It is the coach of Sir John Shorter, Lord Mayor, and as the door opens 'for a stately gentleman to descend there can be no longer a cause for indecision: this memoir will have its beginning in a coach.
