People do not go out from it by the door, but by the window; one doesn't descend here by the marble steps of a peristyle, but by the branches of a lime-tree; and the angel with a flaming sword who guards this elysium

But the lower- fourth was just now an overgrown form, too large for any one man to attend to properly, and consequently the elysium
or ideal form of the young scapegraces who formed the staple of it.
I suppose this Halifax would have appeared an Elysium
, though it had been a curiosity of ugly dulness.
