Even quite near, one might mistake it for a residence, situated 30 or 40 ft back from the low iron fence, with shrubbery and gravelled walks. There are three such looking places in a row, depot to Wiesbaden, and depot to the Rhine.

5 Leave a comment on paragraph 5 0 The city is well paved and clean. The most modern part is well built with wide enough streets although crooked and irregular.  It is said to have a population of 80.000.  A stone bridge of 14 arches, across the main built in 1342, connects it with Sachsenhausen.
