Example text

Withrow's name. In due time the "Cook" agent had us packed in omnibuses, and we rattled our way through London town to the London Bridge Station, where we found reserved coaches awaiting us. We found a compartment and with our fellow travellers Mr. and Mrs. Chantter, Drs. McDermid and Fitzpatrick, and two young ladies whose names I do not know. We passed through typical English country, that is, after we had passed some uninteresting brick manufactories etc. in the outskirts of London. Newhaven.

We sat down indeed on the pavement, for it was very hot, and we were very tired, and we chaffed [bantered] with the policemen, and watched the fine carriages, and elegant coachmen, some of them powdered and in fine livery, the ladies in exquisite toilet, all on their best behaviour and with their best looks. It was a sight DIARY OF A E U R O P E A N 10 TOUR one cannot forget. And everything in such perfect order! After carriages and carriages rolled away with their occupants, at last came Her Majesty, and this time we had a good look at her, as she bowed and smiled in acknowledgement of the greetings she received.

These entries are not ignored, since they are obviously a part of Addison's mental life and experience, but are summarized in the commentary rather than transcribed. The diary also contains some sketchy diagrams which are not reproduced but whose presence should be noted. A few changes have been made in the text, the aim being to avoid impediments to reading while preserving the informal, often hurried or notational style common in diaries. By far the most frequent change is the addition of "and," either preceding the last item in a series, or to a sentence that would otherwise be a comma splice.
