James, H. (n.d.). From a Roman Notebook. Retrieved from

Excerpt: DECEMBER 28, 1872. In Rome again for the last three days?that second visit, which, if the first is not followed by a fatal illness in Florence, the story goes that one is doomed to pay. I didn?t drink of the Fountain of Trevi when I was here before; but I feel as if I had drank of the Tiber itself. Nevertheless, as I drove from the station in the evening, I wondered what I should think of Rome at this first glimpse if I didn?t know it. All manner of evil, I am afraid. Paris, as, I passed along the Boulevards three evenings before, to take the train, was swarming and glittering as befits a great capital. Here, in the black, narrow, crooked, empty streets, I saw nothing for a city to build an eternity upon. But there were new gas lamps round the spouting Triton in the Piazza Barberini and a newspaper stall on the corner of the Condotti and the Corso?salient signs that Rome had become a capital.
