To ANDREW MITCHELL, Esq., The Walk House, Alloa My Dear t Jncle In my undergraduate days, a residence in Gottingen during the Long Vacation of 1874 was a critical point in my life. Then for the first time under the tuition of Professor Theodor Benfey, came irito close relations with a great scholar of the modern type, and gained some insight into modern methods of literary investigation; and my thoughts have ever since turned towards the border lands between European and Asiatic civilisation. That visit, like many other things, I oive to you; and now I scad you the result, such as it is, the best that I can do, asking that you will allow it to go forth with your name attached to it. I remain always your affectionate nepheiv, WILLIAM MITCHELL RAMSAY. King s College A berdeen, nth September, (Typographical errors above are due to OCR software and don't occur in the book.)
