Notes
Content: Printed on border: "In the lower part of Broadway, on our way down the Battery, we met groups of immigrants, newly landed, walking slowly along on the sidewalk, and bestowing a look of wonder on every thing they saw. Trinity Church and the new magnificent 'Equitable Building' on the corner of Cedar Street seemed to be special objects of attention. In passing I heard a German woman say of the latter building, 'Das muss der Palast sein,' and opinion that seemed to be instantly shared by her companions." Written on border: "Castle Garden, New York City" "Ap. 1871" Includes additional text.
