CHAPTER X
TOUR OF EUROPE
1763-1765

I

LAST time, the Garricks had crossed from Dover to Boulogne, and had at once run into trouble, hiring transport to Paris. This time they were going in their own post-chaise, by Calais. They had a fellow passenger. Eva-Maria had found herself quite unable to part with her little Biddy. This had raised the question of what was to become of David's little Phill. For an elegant woman to view the Pantheon, Colosseum etc. with a King Charles spaniel of the first quality tucked under her arm would be quite charming, but David did not take warmly to the picture of himself attendant upon Phill on a Tour of Europe.

He was going to record, principally, his opinions and feelings. "I shall say very little of France, as I have done it well, though slightly, in my first Journal, in 1751. I shall always put down my thoughts, immediately, as I am struck, without the least attention to what has been said by writers of great and little repute. D. Garrick." The second 1 Journal, in fact, was to languish, after a very few pages.

On Tuesday evening he set off for the Comédie Française, which on his entrance seemed dark and dirty. The play was La Gouvernante of La Chaussée, and Dumesnil was acting much as she had done when he had last seen her, twelve years past, and indeed much as she
