Klappentext

Excerpt from A Souvenir of the Intercolonial Railway, the Popular and Scenic Route of Canada

Ten or eleven months of the year, and then, with the idea that he needs rest and recreation, will put himself and his family through a course of sprouts fearful to contemplate. This course of sprouts is humorously termed a fashionable pleasure excursion. It consists in a season of preparation and packing, of setting forth to join the innumerable caravan, and of several weeks of wretched unrest amid the dust, heat, crush and confusion of some popular resort where it is the correct thing for every one to go. 'there is nolittle humour in all this. They seek freedom from restraint, and go to a vortex of fashion, they seek' quiet, and are mingled in a Babel, they seek rest, and at the close of each day are ready to drop with fatigue. Gasping amid crowds on the hottest days, packed in over owing hotels during the sultry nights, swindled by hackmen, bored by guides, pestered by humbugs, tormented by ies, - crushed wilted, worried, driven half mad - they, with infinite humour, term all this, pleasure.
