Excerpt from Travels in Poland, Austria, Saxony, Bavaria, and the Tyrol: In the Years 1807 and 1808; In a Series of Letters to a Friend

You know I left Warsaw immediately after the battle of Prussian-Eylau. The small town of Karezew, situated on the banks of the Vistula, in the former palatinafe of Lublin, in the Austrian territory, became my asylum, and, flying from the enemies of Europe, I escaped my own. Some officers of the Austrian army, who chanced to be garrisoned there, welcomed me to their country with all the cordiality of German gentlemen; and, after having so long lived among savages, I felt happy on seeing myself again among civilized men.

Karezew more resembles a village than a town; it is, besides, pestered with crowds of Jews, who, improving the opportunity of a considerable thoroughfare, leave nothing unattempted to induce the passing stranger to exchange his gold and silver coin for Austrian paper-money, offering seven florins and a half, in Vienna bank-notes, for three Prussian dollars. This small place is built in a waste of running sand, and all its houses are of timber; nevertheless, it appeared to me a Paradise in comparison of Warsaw, where I was surrounded by people breathing revenge, while here I met well-intentioned people who vied with each other to render my short stay among them agreeable.
