Excerpt from Travels Through Norway and Lapland During the Years 1806, 1807, and 1808
It is not to be wondered at then that the inhabitants of Norway should in general feel a. Strong attachment for England, the country from whose friendship her chief advantages are derived, a... nd from whose enmity she can only experience the most dreadful sufferings. M. Von Buch tells us that at Christiania every appearance which had the least tendency to justify the English was anxiously laid hold of. Every measure of a hostile or unjustifiable nature they imputed to the ministry, and every action of kindness they uni formly imputed to the nation at large. Are we then to reward this unofi'ending people, the only people in the world perhaps who are sincerely attached to us, by joining in a fruitless attempt to subject them to their hated neighbours?
