On the rival hill, Mount Sion, is Cumberland House, formerly the residence of Richard Cumberland, Esq. whose fame as a dramatic writer, will outlive his reputation as a diplomatist. At Burlington House, now the residence of Mrs. Akers, lived Sir James Bland Burgess; and North Grove House, behind the new (intended) Episcopal Chapel, was occupied by Lord North. Descending the hill, on the left, is a new row of buildings, called Cumberland Gardens, and at the end is Cumberland Terrace, so named from its having been the favorite promenade of the Duke and Duchess of Cumberland. This terrace is pleasantly situated, and has some excellent lodging-houses. There are fields and gardens in front, the little stream that divides the Counties running between them; at the end, are the nursery grounds of Mr. Thomas Cripps, who has cultivated the rose to a high state of perfection.
