also the king’s mint for coining copper
money. The variety of purifications which
that metal undergoes, as well as the various
processes before it comes to the mint, are
well worth observation. The governor of the
mint paid us much attention, giving us an
invitation to his house, and treating us with
strong beer; a rare and uncommon beverage
in that country! At this place we met the
Spanish and Dutch ambassadors on a tour
through that country, with a very
inconsiderable retinue.

LETTER XXIX.



Upsala, July 8.

We arrived at Sahla between two and
three o’clock on the morning of the 8th of
July. Near this “town there is a
considerable silver-mine. The ore, from which
the metal is extracted, resembles the lead
ore in England. Indeed many of the
English lead-mines yield a large quantity of
silver. As we are only birds of passage I
had not an opportunity of examining the
manner of working these mines, neither can
I give you any account of their produce.
