Excerpt from Around the World in Seven Months
At 9.50 A.M., on the morning of the 8th of September I went aboard the vestibule train of the New York Central & Hudson River Railroad, at Forty-second Street, New York; and having travelled on the principal railroads around the world, I can truly say that no train which has ever carried me has approached this one in luxurious ease, comfort, and safety. The train rolled into the Chicago depot at 9.50 the next morning - exactly twenty-four hours. I was detained in Chicago for two days, and then left by the Rock Island route for San Francisco.
