joundy, al thouigh neatrly ill, fromt
St. Petersburg to B wrlint. A fter

of the compartments. They worei
all occunied. Just as I had decid

which hold four persons, I wa
asked in French by a mun eVI

from those of both England and'
Am.orica. A door opeus in the
athdle of the side of the carriage.
On entering this door you go
straight foward for about a yard ;
to 4e right and left of you arec
two nther passengers, at the ends
of each of them beinga door. Th~le
- doors open into compartments ex
tend-mg the whiol3 width ~of the
catrriage, and capable of seating
about eight per-sons each. Facingt
the entrance is a small coupe to hold
four people. You wi! understand,
then, that, supposing the middle
compartment to be emnpty, pesn
occupying the two end compatt

other by two doors and a long
p)assage-this rcnders it i mpossi -
