In the Preface the author notes: "The following excursions are given in the order in which they encircle Paris, beginning with S. Cloud". Page 1 begins: "There are four ways of reaching S. Cloud. 1. The pleasantest is to drive through the Bois de Boulogne, which is very enjoyable. or (2) to take the American tramway. 3. By the steamers (only in summer). 4. By rail from the Gare S. Lazare." Chapter 2 describes a visit to Versailles: "Summer visitors to Versailles should, if possible, be there on a Sunday when the grandes eaux are playing.
