Excerpt from To Europe and Back: With Incidents in Scotland, Ireland and England It is thing unusual, but an incident of almost daily occurrence, to see a man with his traveling satchel slung across his shoulder and gripsack in hand, starting for Europe-Even ladies are t by any means backward in getting their sea-faring equipments ready, and signifying their intentions of accompanying their liege lords across the Atlantic. This is well, for a man alone on a journey of this kind presents hut a sorry picture without the controlling influence and comforting power of a kind hearted woman Unfortunately, to this miserable, lonely class, we belong, so I am very much afraid the description will be rather dry and commonplace.
