Excerpt from Bubbles and Ballast; Being a Description of Life in Paris During the Brilliant Days of Empire: A Tour Through Belgium and Holland and a Sojourn in London To embark for Europe, with heart pulsating to the emotions of hope and fear; but amid the confa sion and excitement on board the Java, bore up bravely when the time arrived for taking leave of my family escort.
