— Colonial National Historical Park —"The Taverns are many here, and much frequented, and an unbounded Licentiousness seems to taint the Morals of the young Gentlemen of this Place...amiable Hospitality...seems...to have found no great Footing: Schemes of Gain, or Parties of Gaming and Pleasure, muddy too much their Souls, and banish from amongst them the glorious Prosperity to doing good." Edward Kimber, "Observations in Several Voyages and Travels in America in the Year 1736"
