I made you a promise, that before I
concluded my correspondence, I would send you
some account of the two female adventurers
that accompanied us from Lapland. It is now
my intention to give you that intelligence.
The motives which induced Sir H. G. L.
bring them so very far from their native
home are sufficiently known. His
humanity and particular attention to them when
in England, his great care that they should
meet with no accident in their return, and the
comparative opulence with which he sent
them back to their native mountains, do
credit to that heart which planned the
whole journey. Many unfair and
uncharitable censures, I know, have been thrown
upon these innocent Laplanders. The
voice of busy rumour is not often silent
