Appletons' Companion Hand-Book of Travel free pdf Excerpt from Appletons' Companion Hand-Book of Travel: Containing a Full Description of the Principal Cities, Towns, and Places of Interest, Together With Hotels and Routes of Travel Through the United States and the Canadas, With Colored Maps "New Orleans," find the routes thither. The chief cities are taken as starting points for all other and lesser places in their neighborhood. It has not, of course, been possible to mention every village or town in the Union, in the narrow limits of a pocket volume, like this. General Remarks. The foreign tourist will soon observe, to his satisfaction, (and the citizen might remember it oftener, with thanks to his stars, ) the great convenience of the total absence in the United States, of all annoying demands for passports - of scowling fortifications and draw-bridges, of jealous gates, closed at a fixed hour of the evening and not to be re-opened before another fixed hour of the morning- of custom-houses between the several States, and of all rummaging of baggage by gens d'armes for the octroi- and yet, nevertheless, of as perfect a feeling of security, everywhere, as in the most vigilantly policed kingdoms of Europe. He may or may not like the table d'hote system of our hotels - the uniform fare and the unvarying price- that, excepting in the few metropolitan cities, where the habits of all nations obtain, he must submit to. From the social equality everywhere and without exception, he will not suffer, however high his rank at home- and if it be not the highest, he will surely gain in consideration. To win attention and care, both the lofty and the lowly have, and have only, to dispense good will and kind manners as they pass along. Money. "Greenbacks," in place of gold and silver, are current all through the Union, while bank-notes, and especially of distant States, very often are not. Change, too, will save trouble- especially half-dollars, generally the fare of omnibuses and hacks, and invariably the price of meals. Twenty-five cent, notes, too, are useful, as fees for little services by the way. In travelling through the settled districts by railway and steamboats, and at the best hotels, the daily expenses should be estimated at not less than five or six dollars per day for each person. Baggage. As little baggage as possible is always a good rule, though a very liberal supply is permitted on the railways and almost any quantity on the steamboats. On the stages, the prescribed limit of sixty or eighty pounds cannot be exceeded without extra charge. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
