Excerpt from Rambles in Catholic Lands

It was my good fortune to be invited to accompany a friend through South Germany, Switzerland, Austria, and Tyrol into Italy. Many of our halting-places were somewhat out of the beaten track, and for that reason the record of them may prove of interest to others.

Our first resting stage - not a thoroughly Catholic one, yet - was Hamburg. It cannot be reached from our northern shores (unfortunately) without the crossing of the German Ocean - a sea of a somewhat turbulent nature; let the narrative, therefore, of that woful passage be buried in oblivion.

Many persons may possibly regard Hamburg (as I confess to have done myself) as a large and important commercial center, indeed, but one without much pretension to beauty as a city. The idea is quite erroneous.

To begin with, the sail up the Elbe, which takes some three or four hours, is full of interest, and forms a very pretty approach. The green banks, dotted with villages, houses, and numer ous wind-mills, are a relief to the eye after two days at sea. Then, as the steamer glides slowly on, the stream narrows and first Altona, then Hamburg, comes in sight.
