From the livres des guides of the Favret family, now in the collection of Mons. Payot, the following American notes are taken :
I take great pleasure in recommending François Favret to all lady travellers as a most modest, obliging and efficient guide, having conducted me from Chamonix across the Tête Noire to Martigny.
