INTRODUCTION.

the Lutlieran faith ancl constitutional
government, as when under Swedish rule.

This Constitution has not only been rigidly
adhered to ever since, but has even been much
extended and strengthened, more especially by
, Alexander II. and the present Emperor and
Grand Duke.

It is with the view of putting before the
British public the peculiar relations
existing between Russia and Finland, as well as to
make the Grand Duchy less of a terra incognita
than is still unfortunately the case, that the
English translator has taken upon himself this
pleasant task. Should he succeed thereby in
inducing more of his countrymen to study the
history and institutions of this remote but
interesting land—or even to come and see for
themselves how well, with a liberty-loving,
law-abiding and God-fearing people, a Constitution
whose roots stretch back to the Middle Ages,
can co-exist with all the requirements of modern
progress—his object will have been attained,
and he will consider himself abundantly
rewarded.
