[Paris—Thursday, 13 October 1859]

Thursday 13th Saw the gaudy Hotel de Ville, the superb historical Notre Dame and that monument of which any nation might be proud who was visited by that perpetual scourge, a standing army—the great Hotel des Invalides and the tomb of Napoleon. We were both struck with the unique beauty of the Lutheran windows from the roof each having the appearance of an armed warrior wearing a shield, the shield the window itself.

Dined with the Sharpe’s.
