I Another traveller, an Englishman
this time, visiting the Continent,
describes. Paris as "no great place,
though there are good places there and
a great many churches full of reli
k qucs." John Evelyn, who, visited
Paris in 1644, gives us a quaint de
ji scription of the sights of the French
kP Capital in his famous diary. He
ly mentions as one of the most curious
,r things lie sees the garden of Monsieur
e forine, ''who rom being an ordi
Sniary gardener is become one of he
. most skilful and ioted persons in
d France for his rare" collection of
1 shells, floweis and insects.''
I ''His gardei,'' contilnues the gos
o sipy diarist, ''is of 1' exact oval fi
p grnie, planted with eypress cut flat
i1 and set as even as a wall; the 11ulips,
k anemones, raInn.eilus's, crocns',

t of insects, especially of butterflys,
is most curious; these ne spread, and
so medicates that no corruption in

Queen 's dinner was a v'ery~ solemn
affair, according to the niativ'e Ger
man. Hec says: ''A gentleman enter

of the Court. The Queen dines and

Some of the mediaeval travellers
recount strange sights in their pages.
Thus Sir John Mandeville, who lived
in 1300-1360, relates as man.y mar
vels as a Munchausen, which he saw
on the way to and from the Holy
Land. Distressed damsels, rescuing
knights, fell paynims, necromancers,
devils-the entire dramatis personae
of dark-age romance abounds in his
pages. Th one place he gives an ae
connt of the fairy lady who ,guards
the spa.rrow hawk. Whoever was so
chivalrous as to assist her the three
(lays and nights of her vigils was re
warded by the boon of receiving what.

had been fought there. "I was more
