We crossed the Gulf of Lyons, and came within the road of Marseilles, where we were taken charge of by a pilot.  When we reached the mouth of the basin, a boat came alongside of us, and a man handed up a piece of wood, and said, “Mettez sur cela le nom du capitaine et du batiment;”—­we were to perform quarantine.  Whoever has performed quarantine can commiserate our condition.  No one can quit the quarantine ground, or rather the space in the harbour alloted to vessels performing quarantine.  If it be necessary to send any papers from the ship on shore, they are taken with a forceps and plunged into vinegar.  If the sails of any other vessel touch those of one in quarantine, she too must undergo several days’ probation.  Our time was five days; but as we had clean bills of health, and had lost none of our crew on the passage, we were allowed to count the day of our entering and the day of our going out of quarantine.  The usual ceremonies being performed, I again stepped on European ground, and felt myself at home.
