found it was not remarkable for trade or
any particular manufactory. There are
many shops and neat well-built houses;
the streets are spacious and regular, but
like the rest of the Swedish towns it is ill
paved. The churches are lofty and
magnificent.

After passing through the town, which
took up some time, we entered a most
delightful country, and were agreeably
surprised to find prospects around us which
brought to our remembrance old England.
We were treated with many noble views,
not inferior to those of Richmond or
Windsor; large fields of luxuriant corn;
hills richly clothed with lofty trees,
especially oaks of an uncommon size. The
beautiful and large lake Wetter, along the
side of which we travelled, extends itself
for several miles, with many pleasant
villages on its banks. There is in the centre
of this lake an island fourteen or fifteen
miles long, which forms one complete
parish, and is a most delightful place of
residence. This night we spent at
Nordkoping, from whence I write.
