Notes:

The spires of Blois cathedral are seen across the River Loire.

To most travellers in France the town of Blois is associated with a ch√Ęteau rather than with a cathedral; it is oneof a group or towns known and visited for the historic piles which tower above their grey roofs—Amboise and Chambord, Langais and Chenonceaux, Chaumont and Montrichard. We count Blois with these rather than with the towns famous for their churches, and the bishopstool comes rather as a surprise, or as a thing unconsidered.

The Cathedral, built in the seventeenth century and dedicated to St. Louis, occupies a magnificent position, overhanging the grey waterfront of the Loire in a fashion which seems to call for some nobler building.” (p. 192)
