​The New Atlantis

A ‘CITY OF LIGHT’

Dorothy and her friends were at first dazzled by the brilliancy if the wonderful City. The streets were lined with beautiful houses all built of green marble and studded everywhere with sparkling emeralds. They walked over the pavement of the same green marble, and where the blocks were joined together were rows of emeralds, set closely, and glittering in the brightness of the sun . . . Everyone seemed happy and prosperous.
