LAST DAYS IN A DUTCH HOTEL

(1897)

When we said that we were going to Scheveningen, in the middle of September, the portier of the hotel at The Hague was sure we should be very cold, perhaps because we had suffered so much in his house already; and he was right, for the wind blew with a Dutch tenacity of purpose for a whole week, so that the guests thinly peopling the vast hostelry seemed to rustle through its chilly halls and corridors like so many autumn leaves. We were but a ...

Het Vatikaan.

I.

Reeds meermalen noodigde ik u uit, mij te vergezellen op mijne wandelingen door Rome, de onvergetelijke, de onvergelijkelijke stad. Wij doolden te zamen langs hare straten en pleinen, door hare ru"inen en monumenten; wij bezochten hare kerken, kloosters en paleizen; wij trachtten ons uit den overstelpenden rijkdom van beelden en herinneringen, die zich hier bij elken voetstap verdringen, althans de belangrijkste en treffendste voor den geest te roepen. Eene geschiedenis van vijf en twintig eeuwen, eene geschiedenis als geene andere s...
