opportunities were given for discursive speculations upon political and religious questions of the very highest character. To this latter charge he readily pleads guilty, having ever been unwilling to interfere in the creeds of others; but with regard to the former he trusts that his more sober and less imaginative readers, aware how easy it is to embellish and exaggerate for the excitement of wonder, will give him credit for confining himself to a record of those scenes and events alone which came immediately under his eye and which stood in the most simple objective relation to his mind. He has, indeed, purposely avoided giving the colouring of his own opinions and impressions to what he has described, wishing rather to be only a passive instrument in conveying an exact transcript of what he saw, to the mind of the reader. The work, on these accounts, will be found to be for the most part of a topographical character, the different localities being considered, sometimes in reference to their former state, sometimes to their capabilities for the future, and occasionally, to the mention of them in the Scriptures.

The volumes on Palestine and Syria are first published, in deference to the deep interest that must ever attach to countries so closely connected with the history of our religion.
