30th. Wednesday.

This morning I went and took leave of the Baron Albedyhll the Swedish chargé d'affaires here, and he gave me a couple of letters for Stockholm. At about noon I took leave of Mr. D. and of Mr. Artaud and set out upon the road for Wibourg [Vyborg]. We arrived at about 11. o'clock P.M. at the third station and as it was extraordinarily dark we stay'd there till 7 o'clock the next morning.1
