61. The Empress of Russia's Travelling Equipage Published as the Act Directs by Harrison and Co April 1 1784. Metz del. Walker Sculp. 'In former times, the nobles also rode in equipages little differing from those now in use among the lower orders; and it is only since the middle of the last century that coaches, chariots, calashes, gigs, droshkas, &c., were introduced among the nobles of Russia. But in the present day, sumptuous carriages abound in the streets of the two capitals. On the First of May 1811, on the festival which introduces the spring, I witnessed upwards of 3000 coaches and chariots, most of them with four, and many of them with six horses, on the great promenade between the Sakolnik and the city of Moscow. The nobility endeavour to outshine each other, on these occasions, in the splendor of their equipages, in the beauty of their horses, and sumptuousness of their liveries; and as the great festival-days in the Russian Kalendar are still numerous, notwithstanding the deductions which have been made from them within the last century, there is no want of opportunities for display. But very few, comparatively, appear on horseback on such days : they prefer to be seated in an open landau or chariot, and to view at their ease the extensive line of equipages moving on, at a gentle pace, alongside of them.'
