Excerpt from Recollections of Siberia, in the Years 1840 and 1841
In modern times we have, it is true, a Tour in Siberia and Kamtchatka, by Mr. Dobell, (an Irish man by birth, and now Russian Consul at Elsinore) in the years 1812 and 1814; but he describes the latter much more than the former. We have a Pedestrian Tour, by the late Captain Cochrane, in 1821, made under such extraordinary circumstances, as well as that of the blind traveller, Holman, that while they increased public interest in what re garded the narrators, they somewhat diminished their confidence in the accuracy of the information.
