eleven oa clock at night until four in the morning, while watchmen guarded the sleeping city. Through one of the gaps in the wall made by their cannon, British troops entered the town in 1762 to raid and despoil it. I have heard that many people expected just such terrible treatment in 1898 and were amazed at the attitude of the American soldiers. Formerly a moat surrounded the walls, but it was a regular pest hole and we have filled it in, replacing it by a wide strip of lawn which sets off the fine old battlements. We have been wise in preserving the walls. They are the most artistic touch in the city.
In wide avenues and parks, many splendid public buildings and airy bungalows outside the walls you see the American imprint. Throughout the city, within the walls and in the outskirts, as well as in the newly built sections, we have cleaned and beautified, without spoiling the a local color.a Honolulu has been Americanized into monotony, but Manila, with all its sanitation, is still picturesque. We can only hope that it may
retain its beauty as it grows into the great commercial port of the Orient.
The Pasig River divides the city into two parts. One side, between the river and the bay, is the Walled City and the New Manila, being built on plans laid down by the late D. H. Burnham, famous as an architect of a Cities Beautiful.a There are also several residential sections which were suburbs in the Spanish days. On the other side of the river are the retail business streets and the native and Chinese quarters, besides some fine residential districts. Several bridges span the Pasig, chief among them the historic old Bridge of Spain.
