Dear Editor, I fear I can say nothing original about the delightful Swiss tour that Constance and I enjoyed in the early summer, but you may like a short account of. We started on May 16th, and most March like morning, for Paris. Arrived at Dover, we saw our wretched little steamer rolling vigorously in the harbour, and it was very difficult to get downstairs; this rolling they say is caused by the new breakwater. However, our troubles did not last long, and by 7 o'clock we were at the G.F.S. Lodge, Paris, greeted by a charming hostess, Miss Snowden. A pleasant girl from Dolgelly, Miss Stewart, was staying there, who knows every inch of Paris, as well as its history, and was delighted to act as guide. Paris was not, however, looking its best, the erecting of the great Exhibition buildings made everything dusty, and though Rue de Rivoli was up for an underground railway.
After four busy days, we went on to Lucerne (Hotel Rigi), and were there on the Queen's Birthday. It was kept most patriotically, about 100 people being present at Church, and most of the steamers and hotels being decorated with Union Jacks - our dinner table was gay with them. From Lucerne we went at on over the Brunig to Meiringen, where we spent a cold wet week. It is not a specially pretty place, but some of the walks are glorious, especially the one to Rosenlain and a short steep one to the Alpbach Hotel. On May 30th weather kindly cleared up, and we went via Interlaken to St Beatenberg, a delicious, lazy place, where there is not much in inducement to go for walks, as you can sit in the gallery of the hotel and see the view of the Alps to perfection.
Our next move was to Grindelwald; a hot, lovely day, so we drove up from Interlaken to enjoy the beautiful Lutschine Valley to the Schonegg Hotel, a most comfortable and extremely reasonable abode. The most enjoyable day of the whole tour was June 12th when we crossed the Litch Scheidegg by the mountain railway. It is extraordinary how the little engine can push up such a steep gradient, a tough climb for walkers. In about an hour we reached the top, and found ourselves on the slopes of the Jung Frau, with snow on every side; it seems sacrilege for the railway to have invaded these mountains solitudes! After a few hours in that clear delicious air, we went down by an equally steep route to Lauterbrunnen, where we stayed one night, walking up the valley to see a series of imprisoned waterfalls called the Trummelbach. It is rather an eerie place, the river of falling from the high cliffs in a chasm seems to be trying passionately to get out - in one place it shoots horizontally through a hole in the rocks till it finds rest at last at the bottom. The next morning we walked in brilliant sunshine up to the far famed Murren, the panorama of peaks showing well through the fir woods. The hotel was fairly full of pleasant people, including Mr Chamberlain, the Chaplain, with his pretty Swiss wife and funny old German mother-in-law. But after a few days rain set in and as it was dull living in the steam of the seething cauldron of clouds that filled the valley below, we took flight, and came down to Spiez, on Lake Thun, and found sunshine again. Here we spent our last week, with many excursions on the lake and a rash up to Weissenburg, and reached home with great pleasure on June 27th after a most successful holiday.
This letter is not signed but the collater considers it was written by a sister of Constance.
