Excerpt from A Winter in Iceland and Lapland, Vol. 2 of 2

Accordingly, in the month of August, I crossed over to Hamburg by a steamer, and soon found myself in that noisy place. Every thing is here matter of fact and vulgar, from the pea sant-girls, with their thick legs, and hats Jihe beehives, to the Hebrew countenances that monopolize whole districts of the town. It is generally said, that there are more deformed persons congregated at Lisbon than in any other city; but in one description, that Of hunch backs, probably no place in the world can surpass Hamburg. Every variety Of contortion is to be met with here; and there is no probability that the next generation will be less ornamental, as there are certainly enough of the rising one to replace the present beauties whenever they disappear.
