I pass Over in Short All the Vicissitudes of the and Calm sickness and unsavoury scents and All its accumulation of Petty substitutions for Comfort. It is enough that after twelve Days Purgatory i came on deck one delicious May morning and found the Swallow skimming gracefully along the gentle bosom of the thames sur rounded on All sides by an almost in conceivable number of ves Selb sailing and tacking in every direction.

To the House of the worthy or. Simpkins in particular i was in and feasted to an almost uneasy sense of repletion both with physical nutrients and intellectual condiments for the six misses Simp Kinses though tolerable pretty were most intolerably accomplished and seemed to be afflicted with perfect Ger Man mania. They danced German Dan Ces and Sang German songs admired German authors and chattered about the Rhine and the Halz mountains for an hour together. Indeed had 1 been a vain Man i might have been inclined to think their attentions personal miss Lydia went so far Aslo remark that they might say what Lilicy pleased about italian skits and italian sunsets hut for her part she should prefer a Perma nent residence in Germany Lollita of any other country. It is so strangely interesting such divine mysticism Hung Over it la fact there was a a Oina Tion about it which she was unable to account All this was very Gratifying to me but indeed where Ever i went All was Joy and Sunshine and on the seventh night i retired to my bed firmly impressed with the conviction that the English were the most cordial civil hospitable kind hearted people on the Laco of the Globe.
