At the little town of Vevey, in Switzerland, there is a particularly comfortable hotel. {Daisey Miller}
During a portion of the first half of the present century, and more particularly during the latter part of it, there flourished and practised in the city of New York a physician who enjoyed perhaps an exceptional share of the consideration which, in the United States, has always been bestowed upon distinguished members of the medical profession. {Washington Square}
