James Russel in Rome - January, 1742, at night
from Letters from a young painter abroad to his friends in England. Adorned with copper plates. Volume 1, page 79:
A picture of a Madonna, that is, of the blessed Virgin and our Saviour in her arms, is hung up almost at every corner in the streets. Here every evening an Ave Maria is sung, with an Invocation to all the saints; while the streets ring with an Ora pro nobis, sent out of the mouth of children kneeling round, and repeating it together as loud as they can bawl.
