Description

Excerpt from Notes on a Journey Through France: From Dieppe Through Paris and Lyons; To the Pyrennees and Back Through Toulouse, in July, August and September, 1814, Describing the Habits of the People and the Agriculture of the Country

There is a marked difference between the two languages, of which I was not at all aware, in the manner of delivery. The English' use much emphasis, the French scarcely any; and in speaking French, anxious to be understood, we are apt to use still more emphasis than in our own tongue; which makes sad work of it. Teachers should attend to this; to the cadence of the sentence, as well as the pronunciation of the words.

July '28.-waited upon M. Tessier, who is Inspector ofthe National Flocks, and well known as a writer on agriculture; he received us with great politeness and liberality; he shewed us specimens of wool from the Rambouillet ?ock.
