Hurton irriterade sig över passkontrollerna:
The passport system in Norway and Sweden is very annoying. Every fresh town you visit, you must have your papers viséed, and pay a fee. The natives themselves cannot leave one town for another without a passport. On leaving Tromsö I paid eighty skillings Norsk (about three shillings), merely for my name being written on the clearing paper of the vessel I had obtained a passage in. (s. 326)
