Gourds full of milk, of newly-laid eggs, of rice-cakes upon banana leaves, baskets laden with potatoes, with mangoes, with oranges, with pomegranates, with bananas, with dates, with ananas, offered at once the most wholesome meats, the most beautiful colours, and the most agreeable juices.

Our readers will not be displeased to be reminded of this charming scene Often would she come there to wash the household linen beneath the shade of the two cocoa-nut trees.
