In presenting to his countrymen these random and famiU ar sketches of the manners, customs, and character of theE ast, the author is aware that the field of his observation has already been occupied by numerous modern and ancient travellers, more capable perhaps than himself of doing justice to the subject. But as the plan of the present work differs, in almost every respect, from those already in print, it may not be unacceptable to the public. In every thing relating to the affairs and condition of the interesting countries which the author has traversed, he has endeavoured to arrive at just and trueconclusions. Where he has commended, he has done so in all sincerity; and where it was his duty to adopt an opposite course, he has not allowed himself to set down aught in malice.
