Seite 126 - And where does he wander to now — that happy, easy-tempered son of the South ? Ah, he has no proud looks, and though he has just played to members of the aristocracy, he is willing to turn as merrily for the lowest of the people. I meet him in the dingy alleys of the great city — I meet him in the regions of garbage and filth, where the atmosphere inhaled seems to be an impartial mixture of smoke and decomposition, and where the diet of the people seems to consist of fried herrings and potato...
