our destination. Only one more day and we shall be
in Petersburg ; I shall leave this carriage, in which
I have now lived for a month, since I came aboard at
Krasnoyarsk on September 29, excepting, of course,
the interval when we were travelling through the Ussiiri
District and the Amiir District. The landscape is still
just as wintry, but it has become rather flatter ; there
is forest, chiefly spruce, interspersed with birch and
aspen and other leaf-bearing trees, and there are
cultivated fields. And soon we shall see the last of it.
I have a feeling of sadness on parting from these
great melancholy forests and this solemn scenery, with
its broad, simple lines, free from all petty details. I
have come to love it, this boundless land, mighty as the
ocean itself, with its infinite plains and its mountains—
its frozen Arctic coast—its free and desolate tundra—
its deep, mysterious taiga, from the Ural to the Pacific
—its grass-grown, rolling steppes—its purple, wooded
hills—and its little scattered patches of human life.
