The land of the North Ostrobothnians is pleasant, peaceful and safe, and it offers a lavish abundance of fish all year round. There are no noxious animals in this sea, and on land there are hardly any dangerous reptiles or other animals that one need be fearful towards. Various types of birds can be heard singing pretty songs amongst the tree branches. In the summertime it is not dark, nor is there any intense heat: rather, the weather is reasonably warm and healthy. The folks who live in these lovely environs are chaste, virtuous and hospitable. Immorality, infidelity and prostitution are not practised hereā€”such power is, in the unadulterated way of God, amongst these simple and unpretentious people. Materialistically speaking, their life is rich: they purchase good wines as well as salt from Spain and Portugal, precious cloths from England and Flanders, all sorts of household articles, ornaments and casual clothing from German cities together with general and winter wheat and all kinds of vegetables for their household requirements from Svealand and Ostrogothnia.
