In fact, I assume no other merit for the fol lowing pages than that of having always writ ten them on the spots whieh'they profess to describe. The only exceptions to this asser tion are the four initial chapters, which were subsequently compiled from my Journal, the three first, because the places they treat of are too well known to'comniunicate interest to a daily detail,'and the fourth because, for the same reason, I kept no regular Journal dining thethree years of my residence at Constanti neple (where I passed the greater'part, and expected to pass the whole, of my time) but contented myself with noting down such oc currences as seemed to me to illustrate the character of the, government, or the manners of the people.
