3 Leave a comment on paragraph 3 0 29th  Determined not to waste any more time here we arose at half
past four this morning, breakfasted, and after a very long cab ride
reached the Depot at 6.   Henry always likes to be on hand in good
season,  would rather have us wait for the cars than to have them
wait for us-            At 640 AM we were on our way south,
in a shower that made us very indifferent to the landscape.
In Bohemia we notice that three dogs abreast is the most common team,
that the woman carry square baskets, up on their backs, instead of round
ones,   that all classes even to the lowest laboring men either touch
or remove their hats when meeting a friend-     A great many men
take off their hats to me when I pass, from mere politeness.

catholic Priests assisting an old Priest into the car, while
one carries an immense cross six feet long, then they
withdraw to the depot platform, standing in line with

a knowledge of good drinks-

little city of 11500 inhabitants with flourishing factories.

6 Leave a comment on paragraph 6 0 At 1245 we reach Fûrth the  frontier town of Bavaria where
the Revenue formalities take place again.     Our satchels are once again
brought into the baggage room, spread on the table with open mouth, we
hand the officer our trunk keys showing a willingness to permit any
amount of scrutiny.   He, as a matter of formality, selects one of
our five trunks, unstraps, unlocks, raises the clothing in one corner
