LAPLAND AND GREENLAND LADY. 

 

The delicacy of a Lapland lady, which is not in the least hurt by being 

drunk as often as she can procure liquor, would be wounded in the most 

sensible manner, should she deign at first to listen to the declaration 

of a lover; he is therefore obliged to employ a match-maker to speak for 

him; and this match-maker must never go empty handed; and of all other 

presents, that which must infallibly secures him a favorable reception 

is brandy. Having, by the eloquence of this, gained leave to bring the 

lover along with him, and being, together with the lover's father or 

other nearest-male relation, arrived at the house where the lady 

resides, the father and match-maker are invited to walk in, but the 

lover must wait patiently at the door till further solicited. The 

parties, in the mean time, open their suit to the other ladies of the 

family, not forgetting to employ in their favor their irresistible 

advocate brandy, a liberal distribution of which is reckoned the 

strongest proof of the lover's affection. When they have all been warmed 

by the lover's bounty, he is brought into the house, pays his 

compliments to the family, and is desired to partake of their cheer, 

though at this interview seldom indulged with a sight of his mistress; 

but if he is, he salutes her, and offers her presents of reindeer skins, 

tongues, &c.; all which, while surrounded with her friends, she pretends 

to refuse; but at the same time giving her lover a signal to go out, she 

soon steals after him, and is no more that modest creature she affected 

to appear in company. The lover now solicits for the completion of his 

wishes; if she is silent, it is construed into consent; but if she 

throws his presents on the ground with disdain the match is broken off 

forever. 

 

It is generally observed, that women enter into matrimony with more 

willingness, and less anxious care and solicitude, than men, for which 

many reasons naturally suggest themselves to the intelligent reader. The 

women of Greenland are however, in many cases, an exception to this 

general rule. A Greenlander, having fixed his affection, acquaints his 

parents with it; they acquaint the parents of the girl; upon which two 

female negociators are sent to her, who, lest they should shock her 

delicacy, do not enter directly on the subject of their embassy, but 

launch out in praises of the lover they mean to recommend, of his house, 

of his furniture, and whatever else belongs to him, but dwell most 

particularly on his dexterity in catching seals. She, pretending to be 

affronted, runs away, tearing the ringlets of her hair as she retires;
