2 Leave a comment on paragraph 2 0 The floor has long since been worn out and replaced by a straight plain plank flooring wide and rough which squeaks disagreably [sic], whereas all other Cathedrals heretofore visited have stone flooring-

3 Leave a comment on paragraph 3 0 We have also visited the large plain church of the Capucins [sic] and as it is only celebrated for having  a Crypt full of illustrious bones, we proceeded at once to that department. Arranged in long rows, each on standing on short legs or low platforms, are one hundred and three sarcophagi, all in bronze.             The largest and most elaborate is that of Marie Thiresa [sic], and husband, around which are arranged smaller ones holding her sixteen children.   Also quite plain ones of her Father Charles 6th and his father Leopold 1st . Her mothers is the next in size and elaboration. In one row are five Empress’s and four Grand ^Arch^ Dutchess’s-  A very plain one holds the remains of the Duke of Reichstadt, King of Rome, the Son of Napoleon1st, which has been several times demanded by the French Govt but always refused- Beside it lies the Mother of Napoleon 1st     Standing quite alone is the plain tomb
