MY purpose in writing this book. 18 so fully explained in the book itself that a Preface IS unnecessary. I visited the West India Islands in order to increase my' acquaintance with the condition of the British Colonies. I have related what I saw and what I heard, with the general impressions which I Was led to form.
In a few instances, when opinions were conveyed to me which were important in themselves, but which it might be undesirable to assign to the persons from whom I heard them, I have altered initials and dis guised localities and circumstances.
The illustrations are from sketches of my own, which, except so far as they are tolerably like the scenes which they represent, are without value. They have been made producible by the skill and care of the engraver, Mr. Pearson, to whom my warmest thanks are due.
