Tony Butler

Description: 

In a little cleft, not deep enough to be a gorge, between two grassy hills, traversed by a clear stream, too small to be called a river, too wide to be a rivulet, stood, and, I believe, still stands, a little cottage, whose one bay window elevates it above the condition of a laboring man's, and shows in its spacious large paned proportions pretensions to taste as well as station. From the window a coast line can be seen to which nothing in the kingdom can find the equal.
