For the stay-at-home traveller, too, the book should have an equal charm. Longfellow tells us in his poem "Travels by the Fireside":
“Let others traverse sea and land,
And toil through various climes,
Reading these poets' rhymes."
Laden with joyous memories, the book goes forth. May it take its friends across sunlit seas into happy harbors.
