The Crown Prince the best hotel I know.

Chickens the size of sparrows - perfect.
["Hamburg spring chickens" which he found "a shade superior to anything strictly earthly" adding that he could not "think of anything that could taste so good, unless it might be a cherubim."]

Parlor stove & mantel combined -- peat. Can't get it very warm.

Best of beds -- the famous upper feather-bed is loosely filled with down -- 6 inches thick -- light as cobweb, & very comfortable & excellent thing.
