LETTER XXX.



Stockholm, 10th July.

Yesterday about six in the morning we
re-entered the metropolis of Sweden, not a
little rejoiced to find ourselves once more
in a civilised country. Our first care was
to enjoy some of those comforts we had been
so long deprived of. A refreshing sleep,
with clean sheets, were charms not to be
resisted. You will not therefore be
surprised that we indulged most of that day
in bed. In the afternoon, as it was Sunday,
we attended divine service in the king’s
chapel, but could not expect much
edification from our ignorance of the language.
The preacher seemed very much animated
in the delivery of his sermon, which
continued almost an hour.
