THE SENSE OF TRAVEL.
Of the brave Pilgrim and his Georgian bride,
And cloudless joy went wandering side by side ? Now by the Turcoman's ferocious hordes
Guarded, and tended with religious care, Now proudly feasted at the imperial boards
Of Isfahan and Shiras, peerless pair!
* Pietro della Valle, il Pellegrino, commenced his strange wanderings in 1614. The chivalry of his character, his singular marriage, and the novelty of the world he opens to Europe in all truth and simplicity, make these volumes most agreeable reading.
