At last we, too, were crossing the Atlantic. At last the dream of forty years, please God, would be fulfilled, and I should see (and happily, not alone) the West Indies and the Spanish Main. From childhood I had studied their Natural History, their charts, their Romances, and alas! their Tragedies; and now, at last, I was about to compare books with facts, and judge for myself of the reported wonders of the Earthly Paradise. We could scarce believe the evidence of our own senses when they told us that we were surely on board a West Indian steamer, and could by no possibility get off it again, save into the ocean, or on the farther side of the ocean; and it was not till the morning of the second day, the 3d of December, that we began to be thoroughly aware that we were on the old route of Westward Ho, and far out in the high seas, while the Old World lay behind us like a dream.

The following excursion was undertaken for several reasons: the first of which was, that though I had been many times in Paris before, yet I had not once been there since the Revolution, and I was desirous of seeing how far a residence of a few years in France might be practicable and agreeable; secondly, a Counter-Revolution, or, at least, some violent measures were expected, and I was willing to be there at the time, if possible; and lastly, I wanted to examine the gardens near Paris. I must here premise that I sent for a passport from the Secretary of State's office, which I knew could do no harm if it did no good, thinking I should have it for nothing, and obtained one signed by Lord Grenville, but at the same time a demand was made for two guineas and sixpence for the fees; now, as I have had passports from almost all the European nations, all and every one of which were gratis, I sent the pass back; it was however immediately returned to me, and I was told that',A passport is never issued from that office without that fee, even if the party asking for it changes his mind'. I paid the money, and that is all I shall say about the matter.

I arrived at Padron late in the evening, on my return from Pontevedra and Vigo.  It was my intention at this place to send my servant and horses forward to Santiago, and to hire a guide to Cape Finisterre.  It would be difficult to assign any plausible reason for the ardent desire which I entertained to visit this place; but I remembered that last year I had escaped almost by a miracle from shipwreck and death on the rocky sides of this extreme point of the Old World, and I thought that to convey the Gospel to a place so wild and remote might perhaps be considered an acceptable pilgrimage in the eyes of my Maker.

This book offers the author's perspectives on America, based on extensive theatrical tours taken during the years of 1833, 1834, and 1835 through New England, the Mid-Atlantic, and the South. Especially rich are his descriptions of the theater audiences for whom he performed, describing the differences among the audiences of such cities as New York, Albany, Boston, Pittsburg, and New Orleans. Through these descriptions we can get a feeling for the customs and manners of the residents of these and the other cities.

A good minister visited this place, accompanied by a train of servants, and camels, and asses. It is not easy to travel in Palestine, for wheels are never seen there, because the paths are too steep, and rough, and narrow for carriages. Bethlehem is on a steep hill, and a white road of chalk leads up to the gate. The traveller found the streets narrow, dark, and dirty. He lodged in a convent, kept by Spanish monks. He was shown into a large room with carpets and cushions on the floor. There he was to sleep. He was led up to the roof of the house to see the prospect. He looked, and beheld the fields below where the shepherds once watched their flocks by night: and far off he saw the rocky mountains where David once hid himself from Saul.

Après avoir parcouru les principales îles placées dans l'Océan atlantique vis-à-vis le continent africain, et dont les Européens se sont emparés à la même époque où ils commencèrent à reconnaître la côte occidentale de cette partie du monde, nous allons, en retournant un peu sur nos pas, suivre avec les voyageurs cette même côte, depuis le désert de Sahara jusqu'à Sierra-Leone, où commence la Guinée proprement dite. Avant de passer par le détroit de Gibraltar dans l'Océan qui baigne la côte occidentale d'Afrique, on trouve, sur les bords de la Méditerranée, les contrées connues autrefois des anciens, et qui forment ce que les modernes ont appelé Barbarie; Alger et son domaine, qui est l'ancienne Numidie; Tunis, qu'on croit être Carthage; Tripoli, la grande Syrte, Barca, tout ce qui composait les possessions romaines jusqu'au mont Atlas. Au-delà du détroit est le royaume de Fez, l'empire de Maroc, autrefois la Mauritanie Tingitane; Dara, Tafilet, pays gouvernés jadis par Syphax et par Bocchus, mais sous la dépendance ou la protection des Romains, qui avaient poussé leurs conquêtes jusqu'au désert. À l'orient, les Romains possédaient encore l'Égypte et la Nubie, et connaissaient quelques ports de la mer Arabique. La grande région qu'ils appelaient Éthiopie, et que nous nommons Abyssinie, ne leur était connue que de nom. Elle ne l'est guère davantage aux modernes, qui pourtant en ont fréquenté quelques ports, comme Adel, Zeyla, Souakem, etc. , mais n'ont que peu pénétré dans l'intérieur des terres. À l'égard de la côte orientale d'Afrique, que nous avons vu découvrir par les Portugais après qu'ils eurent doublé le cap des Tourmentes, et qui contient les royaumes de Mosambique, de Quiloa, de Monbassa, de Mélinde, tout ce qu'on appelle le Zanguébar et la côte d'Ajan, les commerçans de Tyr et de Phénicie y descendaient par la voie beaucoup plus courte de la mer Rouge, dans des temps dont il nous reste bien peu de traces. Nous avons vu que, par la même voie, les Arabes ou Maures de la Mecque, ceux de Barbarie, et plus récemment les Turcs, y venaient commercer quand les Portugais y arrivèrent. Mais, quand ces mêmes Portugais, quand les Anglais et les Français abordèrent en Guinée, ils n'y trouvèrent que des Nègres et des serpens.

The splendor of Paris, so far as I have seen, takes me altogether by surprise: such stately edifices, prolonging themselves in unwearying magnificence and beauty, and, ever and anon, a long vista of a street, with a column rising at the end of it, or a triumphal arch, wrought in memory of some grand event. The light stone or stucco, wholly untarnished by smoke and soot, puts London to the blush, if a blush could be seen on its dingy face; but, indeed, London is not to be mentioned, nor compared even, with Paris. I never knew what a palace was till I had a glimpse of the Louvre and the Tuileries; never had my idea of a city been gratified till I trod these stately streets.

There are few objects of interest in the town of Cherbourg. The women all wear the large Normandy cap. In the Place d'Armes is a bronze equestrian statue of the Emperor Napoleon I., and on the pedestal is inscribed "J'avois résolu de renouveler à Cherbourg les merveilles de l'Egypte". In the Library is a curiously sculptured chimney-piece of the fifteenth century, coloured and gilt, removed from a room of the abbey. The principal church, La Trinité, is a strange jumble of architecture.

In de tweede helft van de negentiende eeuw genoot deze schilder-van-huis-uit een grote populariteit als schrijver van dorpsvertellingen met een sociaal tintje en als voordrachtskunstenaar. Geboren Geldersman beschrijft hij idealiserend het leven op het Betuwse platteland en laat zijn personages een door hem zelf samengesteld dialect spreken. In deze facsimile-uitgave naar de druk van 1890 (Cremer was toen al tien jaar dood) zijn twee bundels opgenomen: het debuut Betuwsche novellen (1856), waaraan later twee verhalen werden toegevoegd, en de derde bundel Een reisgezelschap (1858). Een beknopte inleiding met biografische en (niet al te heldere) bibliografische gegevens informeert de lezer.

This book is a Year's Journey through France and Part of Spain, 1777. A year's journey through france, and part of spain. As you are kind enough to say, that those letters which I wrote from this kingdom, nine or ten years ago, were of some use to you, in the little tour you made through France soon after, and as they have been considered in some degree to be so to many other persons, (since their publication) who were unacquainted with the manners and customs of the French nation, I shall endeavour to bring together, in this second correspondence with you, not only some of the former hints I gave you, but such other remarks as a longer acquaintance with the country, and a more extensive tour, may furnish me with; but before I proceed any further, let me remind you, of one great fault I was then guilty of; for though your partiality to me might induce you to overlook it, the public did not, I mean that of writing when my temper was disturbed, either by cross incidents I met with upon the road, or disagreeable news which often followed me from my own country into this.

She saw the pyramids, the Sphinx, the tomb of Queen Hatshepsut, Jerusalem, and Cairo. The journey took a little over ten months. She kept a journal during the trip and each night and wrote in pencil about her adventure during the day. In 1846 her journal was published in Austria. It became one of the most popular travel books in Europe.

They now stand within the old chamber of the Representative House, and the pity is that, if elevated to such a position as that indicated, they can never be really seen. There are models of them all at West Point, and some of them I have seen at other places in marble. The Historical Society, at New York, has one or two of them. In and about the front of the Capitol there are other efforts of sculpture--imposing in their size, and assuming, if not affecting, much in the attitudes chosen.

Abbott maakt zich af en toe schuldig aan het ophemelen van zijn onderwerp (onverschrokken, visionair, waardig etc etc) maar sluit ook zijn ogen niet voor de wreedheden van de Europese 'ontdekkers' tegenover de oorspronkelijke bewoners van de Caraïben. Velt uiteindelijk het wat obligate oordeel dat we Columbus 'in zijn tijdgeest' en in het licht van de toen heersende opvattingen moeten zien.

The beauties of nature are scattered with a more lavish hand across the country lying between the summit of the Sierra Nevada Mountains and the shores where the surf romps and rolls over the auriferous sands of the Pacific, in Golden Gate Park, than in a journey of the same length in any other part of the world. Such, at least, is the verdict of many whose fortune it has been to traverse that favored stretch of country. Nothing but the limited power of man’s eyes prevents him from standing on the top of the mountains and surveying, at a glance, the whole glorious panorama that stretches away for more than two hundred miles to the west, terminating in the gleaming waters of the Pacific Ocean. Could he do this, he would behold, for the first seventy-five or eighty miles, a vast, billowy sea of foot- hills, clothed with forests of sombre pine and bright, evergreen oaks; and, lower down, dense patches of white-blossomed chaparral, looking in the enchanted distance like irregular banks of snow. Then the world-renowned valley of the Sacramento River, with its level plains of dark, rich soil, its matchless fields of ripening grain, traversed here and there by streams that, emerging from the shadowy depths of the foot-hills, wind their way, like gleaming threads of silver, across the fertile plain and join the Sacramento, which receives them, one and all, in her matronly bosom and hurries with them øn to the sea.

The Captain was known as a great talker, and was always, in former years, brimful of stories of adventure to tell to any one he met during his short visits to the village, --any one, indeed, who would listen to him; and, in truth, everybody was glad to listen, he talked so well. Many and many a summer evening he spent seated on an old bench in front of the village inn, reciting tales of shipwrecks, and stories of the sea and land, to the wondering people. Of late years, however, he was not disposed to talk so much, and was not so often seen at his favorite haunt. 'I'm getting too old', he would say, 'to tarry from home after nightfall'. He had now grown to be fifty-nine years old, although he really looked much more aged, for he bore about him the marks of much hardship and privation.

I speak here of my opinion as to the ultimate success of secession and the folly of the war, repudiating any concurrence of my own in the ignoble but natural sentiment alluded to in the last paragraph. I certainly did think that the Northern States, if wise, would have let the Southern States go. I had blamed Buchanan as a traitor for allowing the germ of secession to make any growth; and as I thought him a traitor then, so do I think him a traitor now. But I had also blamed Lincoln, or rather the government of which Mr. Lincoln in this matter is no more than the exponent, for his efforts to avoid that which is inevitable.

When the fathers of the present generation were young men, and George the Third ruled the land, they imagined that the whole interior of Africa was one howling wilderness of burning sand, roamed over by brown tribes in the north and south, and by black tribes—if human beings there were—on either side of the equator, and along the west coast.

He was naturally eloquent, both in illustrating and proving the reasonableness of his own opinions, and in converting others from their erroneous preconceived notions. Above all, he possessed that steady and persevering resolution, which not only enabled him to vanquish the greatest difficulties, but gave such appearance of success to every thing be promised or undertook, as secured the confidence of all who were under his command. As these extraordinary qualities would have distinguished him in any station of life, so they were remarkably useful in the present enterprise, by which he gained immortal reputation, although he lost his life before its completion.

The Channel waters were calm and placid as the blue sky above them. Though late autumn the temperature was that of mid-summer. At Calais every one landed as jauntily as though they had just gone through the pleasure of a short yachting trip. As usual there were all sorts and conditions of men and women, and again the curious, the grotesque, the impossible predominated. They streamed across the new quay in a disordered procession, struggling with all that amount of hand-baggage which gets into everyone's way but their own, as they hurry forward to secure for themselves the best seats and most comfortable corners.

This is travel book. We anchored in Batavia Road, and I went ashore, visited the Dutch General, and desired the privilege of buying provisions that I wanted, which was granted me. In this road we lay till the 17th of October following, when, having fitted the ship, recruited myself with provisions, filled all my water, and the season of the year for returning towards Europe being come, I set sail from Batavia, and on the 19th of December made the Cape of Good Hope, whence departing January 11 we made the island of St. Helena on the 31st; and February the 21st the island of Ascension; near to which my ship, having sprung a leak which could not be stopped, foundered at sea; with much difficulty we got ashore where we lived on goats and turtle; and on the 26th of February found, to our great comfort, on the south-east side of a high mountain, about half a mile from its top, a spring of fresh water. I returned to England in the Canterbury East India ship.

De clericale partij, die graag aan kerkelijke denkbeelden en aan de belangen van ’t geloof den voorrang ziet gegeven en die voor een deel ook nog altijd strijdt voor het herstel van den paus in zijn wereldlijk gezag, heeft zich van den slag, haar toegebracht door den opbloei van het nationaal gevoel, door de eenheid van Italië en zijn overgang tot een modernen staat vrij snel hersteld; spoedig na 1870 begonnen haar invloed en haar macht alweer grooter te worden. In Rome is zij sterk genoeg, om bij gemeenteraadsverkiezingen gemiddeld een derde der mandaten voor zich te winnen. Aan parlementsverkiezingen neemt zij geen deel, zoo wil het ’t Vaticaan.

We sight a steamer on our leeward side. A passing vessel is a great excitement on an ocean voyage. From the time when she first appears, a tiny speck on the distant horizon, every one is on deck watching her as she slowly climbs into full view, then draws nearer and nearer to our floating palace. How companionable she seems in the vast waste around us. We wonder to which line she belongs; what is her name; her speed, and whither she is bound: and now that she is within hailing distance, we await eagerly the result of the usual interchange of questions and answers by means of small flags and a certain code of signals, well understood throughout the nautical world.
