Excerpt from Letters Written During a Tour Through Normandy, Britanny, and Other Parts of France, in 1818: Including Local and Historical Descriptions, With Remarks on the Manners and Character of the People

Since the late peace with France, it has become a fashion with the English to visit that country: the greater part make Paris and its vicinity the chief objects of their excursion. Having passed some time in viewing the curiosities, buildings, and other interesting novelties, which that city presents, they return to England, and generally form their judgment, both of the country and people, by the impressions they have received from visiting the metropolis of France. But it must be recollected, that, of so extensive a territory, Paris is but one city, and that the metr0po litan refinement which there prevails can afford us no just idea of the manners and mode of living of the French nation at large. To form an impartial judgment of any country, we must view the people in the provinces, in their distant towns, when unconnected by a constant and immediate intercourse with England and other nations. This object can scarcely be accomplished in France by a visit merely to its greatest city.
