"There is no suggestion of city here; it is country, pure and simple, and is as still and reposeful as is the bottom
of the sea...Dollis Hill comes nearer to being a paradise than any other home I ever occupied."
letter to Joseph
Twitchell, 6.12.1900, London, England, as quoted in Summer in Paradise
