the greatest thing - the trains. Really it was wonderful & I shall never forget it as long as I live. We left Cherbourg after a long stay there & then the country became more wonderful each moment. Had a lovely dinner on the train and wine & all. We reached dear 'ole Paree about 4 and then taxid to our hotel which is most convenient -ly located. We are only about 2 blocks or more from the Champs Elysees - the most beautiful thoroughfare in all the world. After dinner - but before I took a walk out & saw the traffic & peculiarities of this enchanting place. After dinner my allen's man came up

really it 'tis time. The houses - chalets - are very interesting lovely paintings & carvings & beautiful flowers adorn them. Got my ring at last & think it very, very nice.

Aug. 3. Up at seven (7) and left at eights for Scheidegg on the Funicular & what a glorious ride thru the Alps. Really it was perfect. Reached Trummelbach & went on motors to visit the marvellous falls - the most miraculous I have ever seen in all my life. Got very wet looking at it. Took a lift to the upper part & it was perfectly wonderful. Such force & gushing of waters.

& took me - I would say - most all over Paris. We first walk down in front of the Louvre & then down passed the Church of the Madelaine & then to the Opera. It is too wonderful to tell you the impression that is stamped upon me. All too marvellous. We then walked all the way to lower Montmartre where we saw the street carnivals for blocks & blocks - The little pots were so odd & queer. We then taxid to upper Montmartre & went in to the place called Heaven. It was terrible but we first had to see it. You would have died at some of the queer things we saw. We then took a subway - and

on & on until Scheidegg & then our lunch in front of the hotel in comfortable chairs & Jungfrau and Silverhorn & other majestic peaks giving us great pleasure. Such snow & glaciers - wonderful. Some took a car up to the Eigergleb Scher Glacier & some walked. It was a dream of lovely ice & snow & marvellous formations. I gasped & wondered over such wonder. The falls coming from the mountain sides are all like ribbons of spray in the distance. The sunlight on the wonderful lower green mts. makes a lovely pattern almost impossi -ble to believe. 'Tis all so

they are so queer - but we first walked a long ways again it seems and went to the Latin Quarter & enjoyed the queer & peculiar sights of this lovely section. We taxid back to Place De La Concorde & here we parted - I walked to my hotel after the greatest thrill of my life. I am stunned after this beautiful experience. Wonderful-marvellous.

June 30. Up not until 12 - can you imagine it after all this seeing in Paris? So tired I just had to sleep. Miss Dale & I had luncheon here & then started on our tour alone. We walked all the way down to the shopping district - shopped &
