At Sea.

I make no doubt but you have long
imagined that all our projected schemes and
plans of a voyage to Sweden, and a Lapland
journey, would come to nothing, and like
Shakespeare’s “cloud-capt towers and
gorgeous palaces, leave not a wreck behind.”

When you see this letter, however, all your
doubts will vanish, as we are now embarked
upon the wide ocean, and Favonian breezes
are wafting us to the shores of Sweden.
You, and perhaps our other friends, are
smiling at our romantic expedition; you
are laying your heads together and
consulting how three mortals, like Sir H. G. L.,
Mr. B., and myself, can expect to subsist
