Sir Richard Burton's "The City of Saints"

I've begun adding clips from Burton's book as he provides some excellent descriptions of the places he visited. He traveled the same route as mark Twain, from St. Joseph to Salt Lake City, just one year previous. I also much enjoy his rather ornate manner of writing.
