Jepson Field Book volume 15 page 166
Berlin, Germany  - Nearly every Berkeley traveler that had been in Europe told me that I could live more cheaply in Europe than at home. I have had nine months experience in several countries and nowhere do I find the living as cheap except in Italy. Germany and England are dear. I am paying _40.00 per month for board which at Berkeley I could get for _25.00 or _30.00. Moreover there any number of things you don't get here or are limited in quantity. Think of getting just two towels per week! And in every other way you run against their marvelous economies. Another thing: I thought fast eating was ::::::::: April 10, 1906.  a reproach of Americans! In every European country that I have been in, I have found the most rapid eating. In the Italian first-class hotels one had to hold on to his plate. You turn your head to speak to your friend and instantly a waiter seizes your plate and bears it off. They stand around like hawks waiting to swoop down the moment you stop; generally they swoop before you stop. Here in Germany it is the same. I am passionately fond of fruit-sauce. Today the servant or tische-madchen filched a half-eaten plate of berries from under my nose. I wouldn't have believed the feat possible.
