of the latter, spending a half hour in its well supplied
reading rooms.
Frankfurt, shopping, shopping, Diamonds, dresses, hats,
silk-umbrellas, ‘till four P.M. And back again to
Schwalback [sic] before dark. Pleasant excursion-
The first two weeks of our stay here was a little
dull as regards news from stirring events around Paris
on account of the absence of English papers, but about the

by a tax upon visitors remaining longer than ten days.
My tax was about $520 for the family. A special
building for the reading rooms are being built in the Park-
