Hernosand, a beautiful well-built sea-port,
of much traffic. Here indeed we fared
sumptuously, which produced (I fear for
the first time) a grateful thanksgiving for
what we were going to receive, &c. Great
and due commendations I must bestow on
the inn, and our host in particular; every
thing being neat, clean, and good of its
kind; the first and only compliment I have
hitherto had in my power to pay to a
Swedish publican.

After a short stay at Hernosand we
pursued our journey towards Sunval, where
we arrived very late on the 2d of July.
Having so many rivers to cross, and to
travel over a mountainous country, we
found were great impediments to
expedition. A very great drought had prevailed
for many weeks, and we suffered much
inconvenience from the heat, but this evening
a fine refreshing rain seasonably relieved us.
While we were sitting at supper this
evening, we were agreeably entertained by some
shepherdesses, who played upon a kind of
long trumpet made of the bark of the
birch-tree, called in the Swedish language, Lur.
