"The top of the hill ahead was crowded with winged angels and life-sized effigies of
bygone citizens in old-fashioned dress, standing, as if by count, among the columns
and shafts and conifers, like a familiar set of passengers collected on the deck of
ship on which they all knew each other---bona-fide members of a small local
excursion, embarked on a voyage that is always returning in dreams."
