WW to Henry Gardiner: Hamburg 3rd October, 1798.
[Disapproval of Hamburg]
We can scarcely say how we like Germany, Hamburgh is, I hope, a miserable specimen of what we are to find. Everything is very dear and the inn-keepers, shop-keepers &c. are all in league to impose upon strangers. We intend to apply with the utmost assiduity to learning the language when we are settled. ( EY, 232).
