Great Russel Street, a very handsome large and well built Street, graced with the best Buildings in all Bloomsbury, and the best inhabited by the Nobility and Gentry, especially the North side, as having Gardens behind the Houses: and the Prospect of the pleasant Fields up to Hamsted and Highgate. Insomuch that this Place by Physicians is esteemed the most healthful of any in London. This Street takes its beginning at Kings Street, and runs Westward into Tottenham Road being of a great length, and in its Passage saluteth Southampton House, Montague House and Thanet House; all three the Seats of Noblemen: But for Stateliness of Building and curious Gardens, Montague House hath the Pre-eminence, as indeed of all Houses within the Cities of London and Westminster, and the adjacent Parishes.

Opposite to Montague House is Queen Street, a good broad Street, indifferently well built and inhabited. On the East side is Gilbert Street, as also Little Russel Street; both which fall on the backside of Allington Row, used for Coach Houses and Stables. These Streets are but ordinary.
