Sinclair Lewis Commentary on Duluth

So for six miles we clicked along toward the main portion of Duluth, with a faint quiet afterglow in the skies even till 11. The hills were at first just a dark bulky haze, then little by little you saw–well, anyway, I mean I saw–the street lights arching up the hill, past the crinkled plane of waters…My God, I did love the place then.

–Sinclair Lewis from his 24 June 1944 diary entry regarding a day spent on the St. Louis River
