Looking over a quiet and richly cultivated landscape, the view from Mount Holyoke is of the same quality as that from Richmond Hill, in England. Gentle green hills, fair and fertile meadows, watered by the River of Pines. That river is not classic Thames, and no grotesque Strawberry Hill nor historic Hampdcn Court. no Pope's Villa at Twickenham nor st...
