Lowell Mason in Birmingham - early September, 1852

from Musical letters from Abroad, page 197:

The only music we heard here was the busy hum of voices, the cries of the sellers, “this is the cheapest stall in the market,” “a pint for a penny,” the whistling of boys, the crying of children, and now and then the distressed howlings of a poor suffering member of the canine society, who had been cruelly trodden under foot by some heedless passenger.
