From the falls of the Rhine to the Italian Lakes, via the engandine

1st day 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.
2d day Coire. Leave Zurich by steamer for Rap- persweil. The lake, without pretension to magnificent scenery, has other charms which the traveler will enjoy — life and rich cultivation on its shores. From Rappersweil by rail to Coire, the chief city of the canton of the Grisons (five hours from Zurich) .
