Excerpt from The Frosty Caucasus: An Account of a Walk Through Part of the Range and of an Ascent of Elbruz in the Summer of 1874

A short stay here gave time for a glimpse of this famous and now very miserable city, where the Jews in their long black coats swarmed so that it seemed as if the place was populated by undertakers, only they were not undertakers but money-changers, though how so many of them could make a living where there seemed to be so little business doing was and is a mystery. I fear indeed that this, apparently the only industry of Cracow, is not flourishing, for when one of us changed a small sum a number of Jews came to watch the transaction, glaring with hungry looks, as poor children do through the windows of pastry-cooksi sheps at the happy people who can afford to go in and buy. From Cracow the way had been past Lemberg to pod-wolcyska, on the Russian frontier, and thence through the remains of a great forest, and afterwards over a vast fertile plain, dotted in many places with Windmills, to Odessa.
