the bride with a crown ornamented with a
variety of gaudy trinkets, and on these
occasions the most splendid baubles are
generally borrowed of their more opulent
neighbours. In this kind of gaity and
splendour, our travellers excel their whole
country; and their English trinkets are
obtained at a great price to deck out and
ornament their marriage solemnities.

Thus have I given you a general account
of our travels, and of our Lapland
fellow-travellers. You will have much to pardon,
and I am afraid not much to commend.
To make up for my deficiences upon this
occasion, I will conclude the whole with
making you this faithful promise, that the
next time I go to Lapland I will endeavour
to furnish you with a better account.



Christopher & Jennett, Printers, Stockton.
