Gallacz, 1840

Title: The Danube: splendidly illustrated, from sketches taken on the spot / and drawn by W. H. Bartlett ... edited by William Beattie
Published: Virtue, London, 1844


a free port, situated on a tract of land between the Pruth and the Czereth (1) - two rivers that fall into the Danube on the left - is another of those thriving towns into which commerce has lately infused new life and prosperity. Its distance from the mouth of the Danube is about eighty-five miles; and being the only port of Moldavia, is frequented in the course of the year by great numbers of traders, two hundred. or upwards - several of which are English. It is, consequently, the residence of various consuls, entrusted with the mercantile interests of their respective countries, and is a quarantine station, where persons arriving from Constantinople and going ashore must take up their quarters in the lazaretto for probably fourteen days - and that under every possible annoyance that can arise from a noxious atmosphere, the plague of musquitoes, and the absence of everything that deserves the name of comfort. It is expected, however, that the more grievous of these evils, so far as depends on improved accommodation, will be speedily remedied.
(1) The first of these forms the boundary between Bessarabia and Wallachia, and the latter, that between Wallachia and Moldavia.
