Travelled from Les Ormes, the splendid Seat of the Marquis D'Argenson, to Mer. We
went through Tours, and Amboise, and several other smaller Villages. Tours is the
most elegant Place We have yet seen. It stands upon the River Loire, which empties
itself at Nantes. We rode upon a Causey, made in the River Loire, for a great Number
of Miles. The Meadows and River Banks were extremely beautifull.
