"So death, or the Siberian mines, was to be my fate! Though I had long anticipated this, and long desired to learn the worst, I confess the certainty strangely shook both my mental and physical powers." - page 144. "By the end of the first day's journey, the thermometer of my vitality had well nigh fallen to zero. We stopped as usual at a post-station to change horses when the night was far advanced, and the gensd'armes were astonished to find me almost lifeless as they lifted me to the ground." - page 168. "The reader will have gathered from the preceding pages a more or less clear conception of Siberia - its climate, capabilities, and social condition, and may thence form some idea of its probable future. Siberia is the place of refuge, though a penal one, of all the most intelligent and high-spirited disciples of progress Russia has produced [. . . ]" - page 269. ; 8vo. Bookseller Inventory # 12699
