§ 1. PASSPORTS AND CUSTOM-HOUSES.
ALTHOUGH the passport system was for a time abolished in Bavaria, Betgium, Denmark, Holland, France, Italy, Prussia, Spain, Sweden, Norway, Switzerland, and Austria, no English traveller should venture abroad on any account without a passport as a proof of his nationality, and as a means of identification. He may otherwise be marched under arrest, for miles along a hot, dusty road, to some Sous Prefêt's residence, under the suspicion of his not being an Englishman at all. A passport can be procured at the Foreign-Office, Downing Street, by leaving or sending a letter of recommendation from any M.P., or London banker, magistrate, clergyman, solicitor, or surgeon, and calling or sending the next day for the passport, for which a fee of 2s. is charged. The visa of the Austrian and Prussian ambassadors and French consul in London are also required at present.
Those who have not time or a servant at their disposal should forward their letters of recommendation to Dorrell and Son, 15, Charing Cross, or to Lee and Carter, 440, Strand, who for a small charge will procure the passports and visas, and will also mount the passport in a case, which some travellers prefer.
Custom-houses.-The Swiss now levy import-dues only on a few bulky articles, and no examination of passengers' luggage is made on entering or leaving the country. Examinations are made on entering France, Italy, Austria, or the German States.
