Europe, as well as to preserve the pleasing incidents which were shown me, by the people wherever I sojourned. Without following the general course of travellers in encumbering their books in deep historical researches of the various countries they have visited, I have merely put enough to interest the general reader, of the towns, and time-worn ruins which came under my personal observation. Much of this is devoted to sketches of men now prominent before the European public, which I hope will re pay the reader for the time occupied in reading them. Evening after evening I have been requested to recite my impressions of the country since I have returned. I send forth this volume to the fireside of the paleface.
