"Now I saw in my dream, that by this time the pilgrims were got over the enchanted ground; and entering into the country of beulah, whose air was very sweet and pleasant, the way lying directly through it, they solaced themselves there for a season. Yea, here they heard continually the singing of birds, and saw every day the flowers appear in the earth, and heard the voice of the turtle in the land. In this country the sun shineth night and day: wherefore this was beyond the valley of the shadow of death, and also out of the reach of giant despair; neither could they from this place so much as see doubting castle. here they were within sight of the city they were going to: also here met them some of the inabitants thereof; for it this land the shining ones commonly walked, because it was upon the borders of heaven." [P. 22-23.]
