Henry Matthews in Lisbon - 13 October, 1817

from The Diary of an invalid, being the journal of a tour... in Portugal, Italy, Switzerland and France, 1817-1819, page 24:

Went to mass, where I liked nothing but the music. There certainly seems to be one convenience in the Catholic worship:—for those who attend might, with Friar John in Rabelais, compare their prayers to stirrup leathers—which are made short or long at pleasure.
