KIRKUS REVIEW

The nation's capital in in a candid parade of the city, a gay panorama of every phase of his life. Transportation room and board -- various districts -- rides -- estates -- shopping and commodities -- kinds of business -- medicine -- households and how they run -- entertainment -- newspapers and the news -- education -- religion courts -- military defenses -- taxes -- all as background for the day of the inaugural and all the excitement it . A measuring stick for comparison with the city today, which is a isfying comminntion of enjoyable details, suc, the whole producing a warm, well-assembled picture of the city of that day. Really, for New Yorkers and outsiders.
