2 Leave a comment on paragraph 2 0 Some of our party have visited the Botanical Gardens upon the
isolated little eminence just behind this HOtel   which our
landlord calls “one of the finest in Italy”     but our ladies
pity the rest of Italy,  for this one is neglected, poorly kept,
extensive but uninterresting.

3 Leave a comment on paragraph 3 0 This Hotel is one of the things worth a passing notice.
It is very extensive and upon the most liberal scale of any
Hotel I have seen, it is public rooms, halls, and corridors.

4 Leave a comment on paragraph 4 0 A large fine parlor, large reading room, large music room
one end a large fine dining room, and the opposite end a
fine spacious English church.      The whole house heated
by hot air chambers and the main rooms lighted by homemade
gas.         The landlord is very affable and likes to show
his house.    To please his American visitors he gets his Baker
from St. Gallen in the N.E of Switzerland.

5 Leave a comment on paragraph 5 0 The interior of the house is an open court from first floor to glass
roof,    in each story an entire circle of fine granite columns
around the promenades.

6 Leave a comment on paragraph 6 0 Very nice cooking, but too much sameness in their different
brands of wine.      While we, at Alices request take Lieb-
frauenmilch (mild of our Good lady) in view of its child-
pleasing legend.    Mr Castle takes Lacrimacristi (tears of
Christ) but its a poor swindle upon the celebrated wine
of that name made around Naples-

7 Leave a comment on paragraph 7 0 What charming views we enjoy from the balcony of our large
private parlor      Across the bay large conspicuous white cliffs
(some of them are quarries) nearly as white, as the snow capped Simplon
