Excerpt from Mission From Cape Coast Castle to Ashantee: With a Descriptive Account of That Kingdom

At this time of general interest in the little-known kingdom of Ashantee, it occurred to me that a reprint of my father's mission to that country might be acceptable to the public, by making known the genius and character of the people with whom we are engaged in the present unhappy war. While hesitating from the fear that after the expiration of fifty years the information contained in it might have become obsolete or superseded, I received a letter from my valued friend, Mr. David Morier, suggesting the republication of the work, from the desirability that the history of our first dealings with that savagely formidable power should be thoroughly known. My undertaking also met with encouragement from Professor Owen and from Mr. Andrew Swanzy, whose able letters, published in the Times newspaper, prove him to be so thoroughly conversant with the affairs of the Gold Coast, and who has kindly allowed me to publish the annexed letter, in which he gives his opinion as to the value of the work at the present crisis. The narrative of the mission I have given as it stood.
