3 Leave a comment on paragraph 3 0 Along the shore of the river is a fine promenade having many Hotels and fine shops At its mouth is the “Jardin Anglais”. And extending down the coast to the west is the English promenade bordered with Hotels. The first building (as seen below) is the large Hotel Anglais, the third is the celebrated Casino and the fourth is the excellent “Hotel du Luxembourg” which now holds my precious family, charmingly located upon the ground floors having a parlor and two large bed rooms with four windows to the front, each room elegantly furnished, so convenient, and our parlor too, contains a good piano… Such excellent cooking, good service, and the ceaseless surf dashes its spray up the beach just across the promenade, so near, so charming.

4 Leave a comment on paragraph 4 0 The irregular beating of the surf is not quite as soothing music to sleep by as the Falls of Niagara, but we soon get accustomed to it, and a large part of the time it is quiet as a country lake, owing chiefly to the points of and each side of Nice which extend far into the sea breaking the force of the swells

5 Leave a comment on paragraph 5 0 Well, we have had a delightful ride, up to the top of the hill which rises from the coast abruptly, a little to the east of the centre of the city – (as shown in the photo). A pleasant pedestrian excursion for strong people.
