deck already occupied by a goodly number of tourists whose stachels
and bundles filled the centre tables-     down the lake, to Spiez,
on the left  bank, a neat little village with a picturesque small sized
castle on a little eminence jutting out into the lake, for 300 years the property
of the family Von Erlach,    thence straight across the lake at its
widest point  2 1/4 miles, to Oberhofen, where from the centre of the town
rises the turreted old castle of ^Count^ Pourtalis  and the Hospital founded by him.
Each bank of the lake is bordered with hights uniformly several thousand
feet high, verdant, and inhabited in many places where a foot hold
could be obtained-   Thence along the right bank to the hansome
modern Chateau of “Hunegg” the property of M de Parpart near
the pleasant little village of Hilterfingen,    then into the river “Aare”
clear but not deep, bordered with pictu-
resque villas and hansome [sic] lawns, a
short distance to the pier at Scherzligen,
the Railway terminus for the beautiful
little city of Thun, closeby, upon the
rolling land and sidehill.

that we have seen, although having only
about 4000 inhabitants,  and if we

spent a day or two here-
It is the centre of trade for the oberland.
On an eminence near the River stands the
large square towers of the old Castle of         [-Thun-]
