Description

Excerpt from A Ride in Morocco: And Other Sketches There is an old story, told in some tale, of an English housewife who was forever preaching from the text Early to bed and early to rise. Unlike most Of the unpleasant people who preach, this good woman lived up to her principles. She was in the habit Of getting up so early in the morning that by ten o'clock the household duties were done, and she was at her wits' end to know what to do with herself the rest of the day. The Spaniard is not exactly like the woman in the tale; he spends the time between sunrise and sunset doing nothing by preference. But, in order that the day may be thus profitably employed, he does what little is done in Spain for the preserva tion and regulation Of human life at an unreasonably early hour.
