If it be necessary to render any apology for beginning thus unceremoniously my readers will understand that I had no space in these, my first volumes, to throw away; nor much time at my disposal, which I could, in justice, use for introducing myself and my works to the world.
Having commenced thus abruptly then, I will venture to take upon myself the sin Of calling this one of the series Of Letters of which I have spoken; although I am writing it several years later, and placing it at the beginning of my book; by which means I will be enabled brie?y to intro duce myself to my readers (who, as yet, know little or nothing of me), and also the' subjects of the following epistles, with such explanations of the customs described in them, as will serve for a key or glossary to the same, and prepare the reader's mind for the information they contain.
Amidst the multiplicity Of books which are, in this enlightened age, ?ooding the world, I feel it my duty, as early as possible, to beg pardon for making a book at all; and in the next (if my readers should become so much interested in my narrations, as to censure me for the brevity Of the work) to take some considerable credit for not having trespassed too long upon their time and patience.
