Excerpt from Essay On Modern Gardening

I strolled into the garden. They told me it was now called the pleasure ground. What a dissonant idea of pleasure Those groves, those alleys where I have passed so many charming moments are now stripped up or overgrown; many fond paths I could not unravel, though with a very exact clue in my memory. In the days when all my soul was tuned to pleasure and vivacity, I hated Houghton and its solitude; yet, how I loved this garden, as now with many regrets, I love Houghton.
