NOTE

The path effect down the center bordered by 9 lovely old cypresses is terraced with a stream flowing from one level to the next in stone urns. Then there are walks and more little buildings all through the grounds. The hotel is huge now but built on the same structure that you see in the queer old print (next card) of the 18th century.

It would be pretty marvelous if one had loads of money to stay at a place like that, but I'm sure those people who have do not have as much fun as we do batting around.
