At the gate began the inquiries about passports; we were next taken to the custom-house, where we were detained a long time, and every thing was pulled about with much rudeness and incivility ; my books were taken away, and I was told to come for them the next morning. I found all the hotels full, but I succeeded at last in obtaining apartments in the Piazza di Spagua. It was now dark, and I might as well have been in London, except that I should be more comfortable there; however, at last, I am in Rome.
