Bain de Mer

Bain de Mer by George Du Maurier. Punch. The Titwillows take a “Bang de Fameel,’ or Family Bath. They meet some Table-d'hôte Acquaintances, consisting of an “Ancient Colonel,” of Cavalry in retreat, and his Wife and Daughter, who offer to teach them the Principles of Natation. Mrs. T. doesn't Like it at all.
