ABSTRACT
This article presents information related to Lady Mary Wortley Montagu, describing her stay in Buda (Hungary), referring to a 'Rascian Town.' According to her, Buda is situated upon a little Hill on the South side of the Danube, the Castle being much higher than the town from whence the prospect is very noble. Lady Mary was conversing in German with her hosts she must have heard the name 'Raitzenstadt,' or 'Ratzenstatt' for the settlement in the immediate proximity of the south wall of the castle.
