Trains, the First Symbol of the Networked World
Ever since the mid-nineteenth century, when the laying of train lines went hand in hand with the introduction of the telegraph, railway stations have offered the most up-to-date communications services. They marked the beginning of the world perceived as network. You could send and receive messages through a grid, as it were, like lines on a map, without actually touching the ground anymore, as the train passes over the landscape on its rails without ever really touching anything else. It was a more mental world, more mentally busy and fragmented than the old landscape where a physical message had to be carried on hooves or cart wheels.

I got this info from Harvard college library :)
John Keats. To Fanny: autograph manuscript.
In this poem, dedicated to Brawne, Keats admits that his heart “goes fluttering for you everywhere,” and begs her to keep him “free/from torturing jealousy.”
Ah dearest love! sweet home of all my fears,
And hopes, and joys, and panting miseries
To night, if I may guess, thy beauty wears
A smiling of such delight,
As brilliant and as bright,
As when with ravished, aching, vassal eyes,
Lost in soft amaze,
I gaze, I gaze!
