Peter Hawker in Bruges - 20 May, 1821
from Journal entry, 20 May 1821, page 234:
After walking through the streets, which were very clean though very dull, and taking a hasty peep into a fine church, we went on board a barge, which goes to Ostend, and to which all our things were wheeled in a barrow for the regulated price of 15 pence. The captain had collected about a hundred passengers, whose chatter resembled a pack of hounds in full cry, and to this he added an obbligato accompaniment of a large hand bell, with which he summoned them on board.
