For Every Four Seats The Negro Builds Up Four Beds - That Is, Four Half Beds, Or Accommodation For Four Persons.

Two are supposed to be below, on the level of the ordinary four seats, and two up above on shelves which are let down from the roof.

Mattresses slip out from one nook and pillows from another. Blankets are added, and the bed is ready. Any over- particular individual - an islander, for instance, who hugs his chains - will generally prefer to pay the dollar for the double accommodation. Looking at the bed in the light of a bed - taking, as it were, an abstract view of it - or comparing it with some other bed or beds with which the occupant may have acquaintance, I cannot say that it is in all respects perfect. But distances are long in America; and he who declines to travel by night will lose very much time. He who does so travel will find the railway bed a great relief. I must confess that the feeling of dirt, on the following morning, is rather oppressive.

From Windsor, on the Canada side, we passed over to Detroit, in the State of Michigan, by a steam ferry. But ferries in England and ferries in America are very different. Here, on this Detroit ferry, some hundred of passengers, who were going forward from the other side without delay, at once sat down to breakfast. I may as well explain the way in which disposition is made of one's luggage as one takes these long journeys.
