Excerpt from Great North Road: The Old Mail Road to Scotland

AT last we are safely arrived at York, perhaps no cause for comment in these days, but a circumstance which once upon a time might almost have warranted a special service of prayer and praise in the Minster. One comes to York as the capital of a country, rather than of a county, for it is a city that seems in more than one sense Metropolitan. Indeed, you cannot travel close upon two hundred miles, even in England and in these days of swift communication, without feeling the need of some dominating city, to act partly as a seat of civil and ecclesiastical government, and partly as a distributing centre and if something of this need is even yet apparent, how much more keenly it must have been felt in those good Old days which were really so bad! A half-way house, so to speak, between those other capitals of London and Edinburgh, York had all the appearance Of a capital in days of Old, and has lost but little of it, in these.
