That the author was a man of an intelligent and observing mind will be evident from a perusal of the following pages. That he was a man of considerable learning will be likewise evident; although it must be acknowledged that he was not without a tincture of the pedantry common to the age, which has led him occasionally to illustrate his descriptions by the em ployment of classical expressions, and those of such an unusual character, 'that the Editor has been compelled, in his duty to the reader, to make annotations appa rently but little suited to the general tenour of the narrative. This defect, however 1t is hoped, will be found to be amply compensated by the intrinsic merit of the work itself, especially when the date at which it was written is taken into consideration.
