Excerpt from Lyme Regis: A Retrospect

A comparison of the respective beauties of rival seaside towns is a ticklish subject. Lyme Regis, indeed, has such beauties, and some (perhaps partial) folk say that they are above the average. Monmouth, for one, 'thought it wondrous pretty.' But he was there only for the inside of five days and had a personal interest, too, in speaking well of the place, so that what he says is, perhaps, not evidence. The question of beauty, however, can be put aside, because the town has never arrogated to itself the titles which others sometimes claim. Such headlines as The Queen of Watering Places,' The Belle of the Coast,' The Leading Health Resort of the Counties leave Lyme Regis quite unruthed. The town has no use for boasts.
