PREFACE.

This work may seem

from

its title to be a

book of travels ; which it is to a considerable extent; but although some of its descriptions of scenery and of character were sketched on the spot, and although the first chapter, or introductory narrative, is strictly correct in all its details, yet a few of the scenes in other parts of the work, which are intended to illustrate the

habits and manners of various countries, have

received additions which, without making them less real, may bring their occurrences somewhat more vividly before the reader.

The Court, Wellington, Somerset,

March, 1857.
