Lapland militia. We slept that night at
Sunana, where we found an excellent inn.
Every thing, much to our surprise, was
uncommonly clean for that country. The
landlady seemed very desirous to please;
that circumstance could only be guessed at
from her actions, as an entire ignorance of
the language of the country rendered any
other intercourse impracticable.

Our journey the next day was much
retarded by the wilful negligence of those
boors who are obliged to supply all
travellers with horses. A negligence in this
respect subjects them either to corporal
punishment or a pecuniary fine. On which
account, the traveller signs a book which
is kept for this purpose, and at the same
time particularly notes how long he had
been detained by their neglect. This book
must be produced at every
quarterly-meeting of their magistrates, who regulate
every punishment according to the desert
of the offender. Were it not for the
strictness of this regulation no foreigner could
commodiously travel, but must be subject
to the greatest impositions.
