Men travel far to see a city, but few seem curious about a river. Every
river has, nevertheless, its individuality, its great silent interest.
Every river has, moreover, its influence over the people who pass their
lives within sight of its waters.
-- H. S. Merriman

A typo in the above has been corrected.

As I previously asked: Would anyone know (or be able to find out) what work
by Henry Seton Merriman this quote comes from? Merriman was an English
author of the late 1800's/early 1900's.
H.S. Merriman was a pseudonym for Hugh Stowell Scott.

Please contact me off list if you can help. Thanks.
