4 Leave a comment on paragraph 4 0 During the watering season, the citizens rent suits [sic] of rooms to any parties who will pay their price, reserving a small portion in the rear for their own use.  It is a customary mode of deriving a little income, at all watering places, and is participated by wealthy citizens able to live without it.

5 Leave a comment on paragraph 5 0 We have a hansomely [sic] furnished Parlor and bed room fronting on the promenade, and two large bed rooms in the rear. In consequence of the war panic we have contracted for these rooms at 50 florins per week ($21.) whereas the previous occupants who were scared away the day before our arrival paid 120. fl having leased in flourishing times.  As usual we pay in addition  .3 fl for service, and 1 1/2 fl. (each per week) for one gas burner in the Parlor.
