Excerpt from Letters From the Continent: Containing Sketches of Foreign Scenery and Manners, With Hints as to the Different Modes of Travelling, Expense of Living, Etc
There are in Rotterdam several societies or clubs, associated for purposes of amusement and recrea tion. The... ir places of meeting are for the most part out of the town, and consist of gardens, billiard, and ball rooms, skittle grounds and smoking houses, whither the Wealthy burgers resort after the toil of business is over, to indulge in an hour or two's re laxation. We had an introduction to one of these pleasure gardens; but the season for resorting to them was not yet begun.
