"'Now their way lay just upon the bank of this river; here, therefore, christian and his companion walked with great delight; they drank also of the water of the river, which was pleasant and enlivening to their weary spirits; besides, on the banks of this river, on either side, were green trees, with all manner of fruit; also, a meadow, curiously beautiful with lilies, and it was green all year long.' - Pilgrim's Progress." [P. 5.]
