Francfort, Nov.7. SIR,
AS we took Coach at Francsort to proceed on
our Journey, we observ’d the Coachman
to put a little Salt upon each of his Horses, with
certain little Ceremonies, which made part os
the Myltery ; and this, as he told us, was to
bring us good Luck, and to preserve us from
Charms and Witchcraft, during our Voyage.
We passed the Rhine at Gernjheim, and after we
had gone through Forrest al molt drowned, by
the overssowing of that River, (which made the
ways both dangerous and difficult) we found a very
pleasant Road between the end of those Woods,
and the City of Worms, which is but two thort WORMS,
Leagues. This City is seated about Three or ?
Four Hundred Paces, from the left Bank of the
Rhine, in an excellent Country, and molt plea- sspy ty
sant Situation. ’Tis enclos’d with a double Wall,
without any Garrison, or even Fortification chat
