TIFLIS, JllY 1888.-Tiflis has been so often, so well, 
and so recently described, that for me to add my 
small quota of information would be most unnecessary. 
I reached it towards the end of June, with the inten- 
tion of making a riding tour through the mountains, 
but with the vaguest notions of what to expect and 
which  route to take.    My first business was to 
purchase the sections of the five-verst map for the 
mountain country between the Georgian military road 
and the Caspian.' From it I traced out a line of 
march very much at hazard. So far as I could judge
