|Zurich (hour and a half from Schaffhausen) . First a Celtic settlement, then a Roman colony and finally a Teutonic town, the Ziirichians have always been a liberty-loving people and their city has been for centuries a refuge for the politically oppressed of all nations. Here in 1535, Miles Coverdale printed the first complete English version of the Bible, and to this day Zurich has continued to retain a high place among the cultured, industrious and most prosperous cities of Europe. It is a handsome city, and the visitor will find in it much to interest him.
