9781332920389: A Visit to Greece and Constantinople, in the Year 1827-8 (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from A Visit to Greece and Constantinople, in the Year 1827-8

Tm; author of this volume sailed for Greece on the 12th of September, 1827, as agent for the distribution of a cargo of provisions and clothing among the suffering people of that country. Some time after his return he was tempted by a period of leisure, to prepare for the press a short account of the things which he saw and heard during his sojourn abroad, hoping that it might perhaps be read with some interest, at a moment of such universal anxiety and curiosity respecting that portion of the globe which he visited. [t was not, however, until the latter part of the sum mer of 1829, that he resolved to undertake the task; and since that time the completion of it has been unavoidably delayed by circumstances of a private nature. With a trembling hand, the author now lays the result of his labours before the public: he knows the stern tribunal before which he has to appear, and nei ther asks nor expects any indulgence. He would only state, in order to justify himself in anticipation against the charge of pre sumption, that he has not ventured upon the hazardous experi. Ment of publication, without taking the advice of those whose judgment he has reason to respect. If he has been deceived and misled by the partiality of friendship, let the work be consigned without mercy to the flames, and let all the people cry, amen!
