S a aslngle single street and in many towns the new arr arrival ival h h hwaB was taken

allowed to choose his inn to which ho would be conducted by a
soldier At Lucca too was a department of the judiciary
which was specially concerned with strangers and al ar pi to this the
innkeepers had to send a daily report of each guest Yet to judge by the
tour ists accounts the supervision might well have been carried further and
reports upon the innkeepers required from the tourists Such a system ot
double reports would have been a check on the murdering innkeeper to
whom there are occasional references A landlord at Poitiers was detected

she was as detached from tho background of family life and an not supported

FT12N 1 lEN before the Inn came cam e in sight the traveler would see his
I O Italian host Sometimes the host would have touts as far away
I as seven or eight leagues to buttonhole foreigners carry their
luggage promise anything and behave with the utmost servility
I till the morning of departure But with all this to expect
them to provide clean sheets was to expect too much and as the
I nation was grievously afflicted with tho itch it was deslrablo
for the visitor to carry his own bedding In many cases wo find tho tourist tourl t
bleeping on a table in his clothes to avoid the dirtiness or th tho s soll11tn vermin of the
bed Still In Italy ns a rule you shared your OUI bed with tlfese these permanent
occupants only In Spain you were sure to do so one man Olio bed was
the custom there In Germany tho custom was Just tho reverse In fact if
the tourist did not find a companion for himself the host chose for him
and his bedfellow might be a gentleman or he might be a carter all that
could safely be prophesied about him was that when hevcnmo he canto to bed ho
would be drunk The bed would be one of several In a room the covering
a quilt warm enough to be too warm for summer and narrow enough enou h to leave
one side of each person exposed In winter That is supposing thoro were
