In Chapter VI, the author describes his trip from the English Inn to the Hotel Corneille with Baptiste from the English Inn. The author claims he took his time and tried Baptiste's patience with his slow pace and constant questions. The author describes his interactions with his first French beggar and a coat cleaner, learning the important lesson, "Never say oui to a Frenchman, unless you know what he is talking about" (1). In Chapter VII, the author describes his arrival at the Hotel Corneille and the negotiations invovled in his taking a room there.
