through the years leisurely then; ex

journey meant fellowship and merry
adventures and a comfortable enjoy

"The getting up on the coach alone
was at tho'risk of ouo's life," ho wrote,
"and when I was up I had nothing to
hold on to except a little bundle ut the
side. The moment wc set off I thought
I saw certain death before me. The
machine rolled with tremendous rapid
ity over the stones and every minute
seemed to fly In the air, so that it ap
peared to mu a completo miracle that
we stuck to tho coach at ntl.
"This continual fear of death nt last
became insupportable to mo, and I
carefully crept along the top of the
coach aud ensconced myself in thc
"On a sudden the coach proceeded nt
a rapid rate down a hill. All tho boxes,
iron nailed und copper fastened, began
to dunce around me, and every moment
I received such violent blows that I
thought my lust hour had como. Shak
en to pieces, bleeding nnd sore, I crept
back to my former position. Aud lt

"My neighbor every now and then
fell asleep aud when in this state per
petually rolled and jolted against me
with tho whole weight of his body,
more than once nearly poshing me
from the seat to which I clung with
the hist strength of despair. I looked
and certainly felt like a crazy fool
wheu I arrived in London."
