Presuming Paris to have been already visited, you will remember seasonably to get your passport visé by the different Ambassadors of the countries through which you intend to pass, viz. the Imperial and Sardinian Ambassadors, the Minister of the Swiss Cantons, the Pope's Nuncio, and the French Minister for Foreign Affairs and Police. This will probably occupy three days, which time can be agreeably divided between the Cabinet de Lecture the Gallery of the Louvre, and the ex-Musée Charles X., the Bibliothèque Royale, Conservatoire des Arts et des Métiers, Jardin des Plantes and Museum, the Tuileries garden lounge, and the Theatres.

If any length of time be devoted to Paris it will be advisable to remove from the

A place of renown, worth exploring—old
Burgundian Capital.

An ancient fortified town, finely situated.
Environs picturesque. It contains Roman
antiquities. A Diligence runs from Paris
to this place whence it will convey you to
Lausanne, Neufchâtel, or Geneva.

(See Ebel's Switzerland and Atlas.) 40 An excellent city, finely situated on the Rhine, over which is a bridge 280 feet long. The Cathedral and Town Hall are worthy of notice. The Trois Rois is an excellent Hotel, but generally very full. From this place you cannot continue posting, but must hire horses as after mentioned.

40 Situated in a valley, possesses fine warm baths, which are considered very bracing,

+ In proceeding to Switzerland and Italy, you may take the route named below, or that by way of Lyons or Geneva, [See Memoranda,'] or the quickest and cheapest) by Lyons and Marseilles, and thence by steamboat to Genoa and Naples, returning by the Simplon through Switzerland.

The Bridge, Lake, and Walks will engage your attention. L'Epée is a delightful Hotel close to the Lake, along the banks of which are some beautiful rides and walks. There is always a great conflux of company here in the season, and this Inn is the great resort, but it is certainly not cheap At this place, as well as at all the principal towns in the country, you can hire a good sociable, which closes when necessary, and will carry four persons and a servant on the box, for which you pay about eighteen francs a day, and three for the driver. This will travel at the rate of thirty-five miles per day and more but you must pay the same for his return, so that it will be advisable to trace your route so as to enable you to discharge him not far from his home. They generally start early in the morning, and rest three hours in the middle of the day, thus making two long stages.

18 A delightful place, with an excellent Inn
close to the Lake and Bridge. The drive
to this place along the Zürich See is truly
picturesque, the Lake being studded with
towns and villages. This would be a fit
place for a repose of a few days.
20 Another delightful place, where there is a
comfortable and reasonable Inn at the end
of the Lake of Wallenstadt. This excur-

but it may be made in one day, starting
early. It is a fine drive through mountain
scenery of great beauty. There is a curi-
ous bridge over the Linth. Glarus is a
large manufacturing town on the Linth,
and a place of pilgrimage. From Wesen
you may continue your route up the lake to
Wallenstadt. There is no carriage road,
but there is a Passage Boat Daily which
takes you for 2 fr. Thence you may con-
tinue your journey to the Baths and Mon-
asteries of Pfeffers, which would detain you
six hours; afterwards to Coire, in German
Chur, half a league from the Rhine;
thence by the Via Mala, across the new
road, over the Splugen to Como. You
may post from Coire. The road is excel-
lent, through mountain-passes of the utmost
sublimity, meriting its Italian cognomen
of Via Mala, from the circumventing hor-
rors. This is the nearest way into Italy
through Switzerland; but in pursuing the
Route here given for exploring more of
Switzerland, you must proceed from We-
sen to Zug.

40 A curious old town at the head of the Lake.
Here take a boat to the end of the Zu-

ger See, as the Lake is called; and on
landing you can hire horses to ascend the
Righi Kulm, (see Keller's Panorama,) where
you obtain a magnificent view of the great-
er part of Switzerland; descending on the
