LETTER XXXVII.



On the 20th we continued our journey
through a fine country, with delightful
views, for near five Swedish miles; after
which we entered woods, with a swampy
country on each side. Our delays have
been so frequent from want of horses, that
we have been obliged to travel incessantly
night and day; and to complete our
distresses, frequently have not been able to
procure any refreshment. We were not
so provident as other travellers who are
acquainted with the miseries of such a
country as this, and carry their provision
along with them. The next day we passed
through extensive woods, which continued
for many miles; the oaks, in particular,
seemed to be very fine, and of much
antiquity. It is somewhat extraordinary that
they are not converted to some useful
purpose, as every oak in Sweden is the
property of the king, whose poverty frequently
demands assistance from his subjects.

As many travellers were at this time
upon the road, the provisions which, at
the best, are but scanty, were all consumed
