The following pages contain nothing new or original. They are merely reprints from the columns of the Englishman and the Indian Planters' Gazette, and I have to thank the proprietors of those papers for permission to republish sketches of old times in Assam, which may prove interesting to a new generation of planters who know only the Assam of the present day, with its daily mail steamers on the river, and its improved communications and higher civilisation generally. There was much of interest in those old times which has never been recorded, and I can only hope that a more capable chronicler among the survivors of the early days of tea in Assam may be stirred up to fittingly record, for the admiration of the present generation, what was done and suffered by the pioneers of the tea industry.
