After feasting with the Laplanders we
pursued our journey, without intermission
till we arrived at Vitan. Here, though our
accommodations were miserable to a great
degree, we took a little rest, which we were
in great need of. This evening we arrived
once more at Pithia, where we have been
most hospitably received by the
burgo-master, whose politeness and civility we
had before experienced.

LETTER XXV.



Uma, June 29.

We ordered horses at four in the
morning of the 28th, promising ourselves some
repast upon the road, but no refreshment
of any kind could be obtained till we
arrived at Sunana about four in the afternoon.
The poverty of this country is beyond any
thing you can conceive. We slept the
same night at Burea, the residence of dirt
and famine, but quitted it as expeditiously
as possible.

On Thursday the 29th we breakfasted at
Gumboda, another seat of misery and want.
