it needless for me to dwell upon my own. But I will mention the thrill of wonder which overcame me as we drove over the Campagna and caught the first glimpse of St. Peter's dome. Was it possible? Had I lived to come within sight of the great city, Mistress of the World? Like much else in my journeying, this appeared to me like in which he mentioned as one of the boasts of Rome the fact that she possessed la maggiore basilica del mondo, the largest basilica in the world. The Church of St. Peter, like that of Santa Maria Maggiore, is indeed modeled after the design of the basilicas or courts of justice of ancient Rome, and Italians are apt to speak of itrked, Chi mi sente dare la benedizione del balcone di san Pietro intende cha io non sono un giovinotto, Whoever hears me give the benediction from the balcony of St. Peter's will understand that I am not a youth. The audience concluded, the Pope obligingly turned his back upon us, as if to examine something lying on the table whic

We were a little late in starting, and were soon obliged to retire from the highway, as the whole papal cortege came sweeping by,—the state coaches of crimson and gold, and the Guardia Nobile with their glittering helmets, white cloaks, and ound.

On Christmas Day I attended high mass at St. Peter's. Although the weather was of the plea. santest, an aguish chill disturbed my enjoyment of the service.
