Excerpt from Hand-Book for Northern Europe, Vol. 2 of 2: Including Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland, and Russia; Finland and Russia
Everything seems tamed down by the military system, the road becomes level, and wide plains spread their monotonous extent on all sides; the Vil... lages, formed of a long straight row of wooden cottages, lining the road on either side with their gable-ends, are all built exactly alike, and all still and silent, with scarce a living being to be seen, except a few melancholy looking children and pigs - the latter certainly curiosities in their way, attenuated, half-starved looking animals, with sharp-pointed snouts.
