"The celebrated house represented in the above cut is one of the best near the Old Cradle of Liberty, in the city of Boston. We can hardly refrain from inserting the view so tastefully got up, which a friend gave us the other day, and after a personal inspection of the interior arrangements, and an acquaintance with the manager of this quiet and admirably conducted establishment, from remarking that Mr. S.B. Robbins' acquaintance is worth enjoying, and the stranger's visit to his House is designed to leave the fragrance of pleasant memories. Boston, with its belongings and surroundings, is finally calculated to impress most favorably the visitor with the beautiful and the venerable--with the artistic and the sublime." The engraving shows an exterior view of the front of the Adams House and with a busy sidewalk full of people. From "Christian Parlor Magazine."
