Anne Lister’s Entry
not well – left breakfast table to lie down – Monks gave dearest some plants (Alpine) & recommendation to clergyman at Orsiere, if we slept there – saw the Morgues, a sort of chapel where people who have perished in the snow are placed, that they may be recognised by their friends – & the chapel, a neat little edifice, in it is a monument to memory of General Desaix, who decided the victory at Marengo in favor of the French. from 7 to 8000 persons annually visit St. Bernard off about 12 – dined at Liddes – & arrived at Village du Ferrêt about ten, & only
one two rooms for us, guides, George & widow with 8 children – two children slept in our room that cried half the night – did not undress –
