Chapter Summary

If one examines the surface of the earth, the Mimimgardford (Münster) was built in just about the center of Old Saxony between the Rhine and Weser and not far from the Aa, in a place that is level all around and green with very pleasant pastures. For this reason it is properly considered the leading city of Westphalia. The city is placed in the temperate zone mixed of heat and cold, between the tropic of cancer and arctic circle. The inhabitants, living as they do under a colder part of the sky, are mostly tall in stature, and have wild and uncouth habits. They are more sensible than stupid, and are strong and fit for enduring any hard work you please. The people of Münster use partly their own customs and partly those of other, foreign races, and this dissimilarity in habits has begotten a disparity in attire.
