Excerpt from Brittany The kindly people will always treat a traveller with gracious courtesy. But Brittany, it must be remembered, is divided into two very distinct portions, that in which only French is spoken, and that in which the language is Breton, closely akin to Welsh. And of Brittany, by far the most interesting portion is F inistere, where old costumes and old customs are clung to more tenaciously than elsewhere.

Excerpt from Little Folk of Brittany You have been very good to me, and helped me so often with my geography, but at home on the farm are my sister and my little cow! How many times this winter when the wind has blown at night have I lain awake and thought of them and cried! That was very stupid, no doubt, but it is hard to care about the capital of China when one is parted from those one loves.

Excerpt from Picturesque Brittany One of the most noteworthy results of this continuity of faithfulness to a Single dominating idea, under many different forms, is that Brittany is exceptionally rich in relics reflecting the evolution of the religious belief of its people, from pre-historic monuments supposed to be contemporaneous with Stonehenge, to wayside calvaries and shrines, some of the latter being actually built on to the former, popular imagination having welded into one pagan and Christian legend. To the student of folk-lore, therefore, as well as to the archaologist, the historian and the artist, this land of many memories offers an inexhaust ible field, and even at this late day startling surprises may still await the student who has the patience to unravel the tangled web of local tradition and to trace to their original source the various strands of which it is composed.

Excerpt from Chateau in Brittany The immediate experience after having safely boarded the train is that of the dining-coach. A course dinner, even when hurried, occupies the greater part Of an hour, so that although numbers one to fifty may dine a trifle too early, it becomes reasonably certain that the unfortunates who hold tickets higher than the number two hundred stand a fair chance of being very hungry before their dinner-time arrives, even if the best fare be not exhausted by that hour.

Excerpt from Songs of Brittany If you ask the Breton minstrel whence he, the blacksmith's son and apprentice, derives his poetic gift, his extraordinary sense of all that is most beauti ful and fascinating in his native land and its folk-lore, he will tell you, without hesitation, it dates back to his early childhood, when he would listen spellbound hour by hour to the grandmother who loved to tell the boy the old, old tales as he sat by her knee 0' nights in the soft glow of the wood fire on the kitchen hearth. And none gripped him quite so closely as those stories of the mysterious sea, whose voice, now low and soothing, now loud and terrible, was ever in his cars. So to-day there are few writers either of prose or verse who know how to express as he expresses the manifold aspects of the ocean - the true inner meaning of the lives of those who go down to the sea in ships.

Excerpt from Through Brittany The cross now surmounts the menhir, and the statue of the Virgin is niched over the fountain of remote date, where once the Korrigan reigned supreme but the worship is still full of dark superstition, a strange mixture of Chris tianity and of the paganism of the weird days when the sacred vervain could work miracles and the mistletoe was the emblem of the priests. The old stories of human sacrifices seem, according to many writers, to have been libels on the Druids; but it is impossible to contemplate the monstrous misshapen blocks of stone, scattered over the length and breadth of the province of Brittany, without an intense conviction that these stones have witnessed fear ful rites, in which probably demons have been worshipped and called on to consecrate the tombs, if they are tombs, of departed chiefs honoured by these colossal memorials. After the prehistoric period and its remains, which seem to be involved in such a sea of dispute that it is useless to venture an opinion thereon, we come to traces of Roman and Gallic occupation. It is true these are far less fre quent than in Normandy; but still there are Roman roads and gallo-roman villas and tiles, while coins, &c., that have been unearthed are to be seen in the museums of the larger towns, besides the many interesting relics in private local collections.
