Sunday with the Italian Peasantry is really a day of relaxation. They attend Mass in the morning, and spend the rest of the day in quiet repose or innocent amusements. The parish priest walks composedly among the children and the children eagerly run out to kiss his hand to obtain a benediction. This picture truly represents the Italian Peasantry, in character and costume. Painted by a Swiss Artist in Rome. [P. 8.]
