A WINTER JOURNEY

By James Baillie Fraser

“A passage of two hours and a half, rough and stormy, and sick — sick, took us to Calais, where all the little boys speak such surprisingly good French. Two hours more severed to settle all matters with the Custom-house, to change my money into five-franc pieces, and to purchase and dispose my baggage in a very neat, purpose-like britchka, furnished by the obliging M. Quillac, who guaranteed its carrying me with accident to Vienna; and the second hour after noon saw me rolling along the level French road towards Brussels.”
