Count Adelmann is very droll. I seem to understandGerman better than I used and Laura got along famously,especially with Count Adelmann. The second evening Countand Countess Bruhl came to supper. She was a Quadt, sisterof Count Quadt, who came to Washington, very high rankbut very shy and simple—you probably remember him. The next day they sent their open high carriage to takeus driving. It snowed hard four times and after we hadstarted, but we put up our umbrellas and were rewarded withoccasional views and it cleared entirely when we got back toInzigkofen. I missed the poor Prince.* I doubt if CountAdelmann is as happy as in his lifetime. The castle is finishedoutside and we saw some of the new part.

RIVER ALONGSIDE HOTEL BAUER AU LAC, ZURICH *The Prince Leopold of Sigmaringen who gave us a dinner in 1897. He died in Berlin, having gone to the Crown Princes wedding. 589 EIGHT JOURNEYS ABROAD train from Berlin I have ever seen. Compartments perfectlyventilated and every detail perfectly carried out. I fear oursto-night will not be so good. I made a mistake to buy my tickets beyond Munich as Ihad to buy others. I expect Cook to redeem them. We sawthe great ruin of Hohentviel near Singen (see Ekkehard) andhad a wonderful view of the Rhine Falls at Schaffhausen, anabsolutely perfect day and very warm. We have driven aroundthis place and have seen the Landes-Museum thoroughly,with its real mediaeval rooms taken from different castles andhouses. We have sat out on the lake front and are now readyto take leave. I am going to post this from here and mustlet it go now. Hoping to get a full mail at Paris tomorrowmorning, with much love to all. Affectionately, M. D. R.
