several buildings are in Stockholm, from the
many copper-mines with which this
country abounds.

I am unable to inform you of the exact
produce of the copper and iron mines of
Sweden; doubtless it must be very large
both to the proprietors and the king who
receives about a fourth part. Yet,
notwithstanding the large income of the crown,
it is by no means equal to the annual
expenses of the government. — The market
which is held at Stockholm is a
circumstance I must not omit. The butcher-meat
is sold in shambles on the shore, while
vegetables and other marketable
commodities are exposed to sale in boats upon the
water. This is at once a singular and
pleasing sight. The moving shops and
variety of wares that are passing before
your eyes, the busy mixed multitude which
crowd the surface of the water, render this
a very agreeable scene. Something of this
kind may be seen in the Thames upon the
arrival of a large fleet in the Pool.

In Stockholm, as in other cold countries,
the custom of drinking spirits prevails
