Excursions in the Interior of Russia, Vol. 1 of 2
Excerpt from Excursions in the Interior of Russia, Vol. 1 of 2: Including Sketches of the Character and Policy of the Emperor Nicholas, Scenes in St. Petersburgh, &CThese volumes chiefly consist of the narrative of a short visit to Russia, during the autumn of 1836, in the course of a general tour through Europe.Much of what they contain, however, is the fruit of the author's occasional intercourse with Russians in other parts of the continent. Having (on two different occasions) spent in all upwards of five years abroad, he has had it in his power to become acquainted with the manners and sentiments of Russians, under circumstances which enabled them to throw off the mask which, in their own country, few of them can dare to dispense with. To all who know what Russia really is, it is unnecessary to say that it is not in Russia that the true state of opinion among the higher classes of that country can be best learned.To his long residence abroad, during which he paid considerable attention to the various political questions connected with Russia, the author is also indebted for many of the facts given in support of the remarks which he hazards on the policy and character of the present emperor.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
