Excerpt from A Journey to St. Petersburg and Moscow Through Courland and Livonia
The desert became still more desolate, and the wind began to moan with that strange unearthly sound which it has in lonely places, over tracts of snow or sand. To the left, the wilderness was bou... nd in by the distant Baltic as with a girdle, only distinguishable from the sky, with which it mingled, by its deeper blue. Every where else fields of sand and morass extended to the verge of the horizon. This apparently was a neutral ground between the two countries and it was with no small degree of curiosity that I awaited my introduction into Russia.
