When I left this place a month ago, I
promised on my return to lay before you
such reflections as might happen to occur.
I shall therefore, like a man of my word,
proceed to fulfil that promise, and as
Dogberry says in the play, "bestow all my
tediousness upon you.”

I have passed so large a tract of country
during the last few weeks, that you will
naturally expect to hear something of the
agriculture of Sweden. If the knowledge
of agriculture could be learned, or by any
means attained by the Swedish peasants, and
the large and almost unlimited tracts of
ground be unincumbered of wood, which
I have no doubt might be effected by time
and industry, what a blessed change might
be wrought in the face of this country.
The quality of the soil appears in general
no way inferior to ours in England; there
is no reason therefore to suppose, but that
the common method of English husbandry
would equally promote and produce the
like vegetation in Sweden.
