Excerpt from The Silken East, Vol. 1: A Record of Life and Travel in Burma

Almost the whole of this book is new; but the chapter on the Irrawaddy Defiles appeared first in T lze Century Magazine (new York), and some account of my cruise in the Mergui Archipelago was given by me in T/ze Pioneer newspaper (allahabad). I am obliged to their Editors for permission to republish these articles here. To my friend Mr. Henry W. Cave, whose books on Ceylon have long been a delight to lovers of Eastern life and scenery, I am obliged for the perusal of the final proof-sheets of this book, and for many other kindnesses.
