From Edwin James' account of S.H. Long's expedition from Pittsburgh to the Rocky Mountains in 1819-1820:

"Pittsburgh has been so often described, the advantages and disadvantages of its situation, and the gloomy repulsiveness of its appearance, have been so often and so justly portrayed, that we should not think ourselves well employed in recounting our own observations."
