"Why, I should think," said Rollo, "that the lead would go down to the bottom of itself, no matter how deep the water was." "It would," said the captain, "were it not for the line.

At such places Vittorio would stop, usually at a post house at the foot of the ascent, and take an additional horse, or pair of horses, and sometimes a yoke of oxen, to help his team draw the carriage up the hill. Many of these ascents were four or live miles long, and as the road turned upon itself in continual zigzags, there was presented to Mr. George and Rollo, and also to Mrs.
