"We had a plain, simple, unpretending, good hotel, in Baden-Baden—the Hôtel de France—and alongside my room I had a giggling, cackling, chattering family who always went to bed just two hours after me and always got up two hours ahead of me. But this is common in German hotels; the people generally go to bed long after eleven and get up long before eight. The partitions convey sound like a drum-head, and everybody knows it; but no matter, a German family who are all kindness and consideration in the daytime make apparently no effort to moderate their noises for your benefit at night. They will sing, laugh, and talk loudly, and bang furniture around in a most pitiless way. If you knock on your wall appealingly, they will quiet down and discuss the matter softly among themselves for a moment—then, like the mice, they fall to persecuting you again, and as vigorously as before. They keep cruelly late and early hours, for such noisy folk."

1-We had a plain, simple, unpretending, good hotel, in Baden-Baden

2—the Hôtel de France

3—and alongside my room I had a giggling, cackling, chattering family

4-who always went to bed just two hours after me

5-and always got up two hours ahead of me.

6-But this is common in German hotels;

7-the people generally go to bed long after eleven and get up long before eight.

8-The partitions convey sound like a drum-head,

9-and everybody knows it; but no matter,

10-a German family who are all kindness and consideration in the daytime

11-make apparently no effort

12-to moderate their noises for your benefit at night.

13-They will sing, laugh, and talk loudly,

14-and bang furniture around in a most pitiless way.

15-If you knock on your wall appealingly,

16-they will quiet down and discuss the matter softly among themselves for a moment—

17-then, like the mice, they fall to persecuting you again,

18-and as vigorously as before.

19-They keep cruelly late and early hours, for such noisy folk.
