Opis: Rambles and Reflections - Clayton Thomas J.

Excerpt from Rambles and Reflections: Europe From Biscay to the Black Sea and From tna to the North Cape With Glimpses at Asia, Africa, America and the Islands of the Sea
The following letters are published in book form more as a souvenir for my friends than for general distribution. I have received many flattering letters requesting copies of the newspapers in which they were originally published, but which I have been unable to furnish. This book is intended to supply that demand.
The first series of letters was published in 1869, before the Franco-Prussian War. In that year I saw Paris as it will, perhaps, never be seen again. It was the most glorious period of the Empire of Napoleon III.
The second series was published in 1873, after France's humiliation and during the World's Fair, at Vienna, a display that has never been equaled by any exposition that it has been my good fortune to see.
In 1888, I made an extended tour of Europe, from Sicily to the North Cape and from Paris to Constantinople. The letters of this series give faithful pictures, as far as I was able to paint them, of my experience and observations during six months of the most active and, to me, the most interesting period of my life.
In 1889 I visited Spain and Northern Africa and have endeavored to give my impressions of the places I visited during the three months I spent in those interesting countries.
The last series of foreign letters was written in 1892, and is confined to France, Italy and Africa.
I trust the letters from Florida, Havana, Jamaica and Bermuda, written during the winters of 1890 and 1891 will prove interesting to those who have, as well as to those who have not visited those places.
The letters describing my hunts in Arkansas and Virginia will recall some pleasant recollections to the old friends who were my partners upon those pleasant occasions and will be enjoyed by all who are fond of the sports of the field and are friends of the dog and gun.
