THE DIET.

71

general sitting on the proposal of one order,
supported by at least one of the other orders.
These sittings, at which the President of the
order of nobles takes the chair by right of
priority, and at which the senators may be
present on the part of the Government, can
only be deliberative ; the resolutions on
questions thus debated are passed in an ordinary
sitting of each order, immediately after the
close of the general sitting, without any
renewal of the debate.

The sittings are public, but strangers may
be excluded and the sitting be a secret one
by a previous declaration and decision to that
effect.

At the sittings of the order of nobles the
Swedish language is exclusively used ; at those
of the other orders, Swedish or Finnish is
optional. At those of the order of the
peasantry, translation* is obligatory, and is made
by official interpreters.

* i.e., from Finnish into Swedish. It may be as well to
remind the reader that the noble families of Finland are almost
exclusively of Swedish descent, hence Swedish is their mother
tongue.
