2 Leave a comment on paragraph 2 0 We have spent a part of two days at the Museum, the great Museo Nazionale formerly called the Museo Reale Borbonico. It is in the upper part of the city, that is, we go south but are all the time ascending. Through the Toledo, the broadway of Naples, the Mercatillo, and up the new strada di Capodimonte, altogether about a mile and half from here.

3 Leave a comment on paragraph 3 0 On this trip it occurred to us to count the Priests who we met from our Hotel to the Museum. We did not begin until we had gone three or four blocks, but we counted one hundred and eleven of them, easily distinguished by their long black coat down to their heels and their wide brimmed black hat, slinking around like black cats, never more than two together in a place (on this trip) Ride where we will we are seldom out of sight of Priests. Monks are a little less numerous than Priests. They dress in long brown coats and either go bearheaded [sic] or wear a little tight scull cap.

4 Leave a comment on paragraph 4 0 We found the Museum a large institution and on this first day only succeeded in skimming over the ground floor and basement when our families cried enough, leaving the Entresal and main floor above for another day (two days after).
