"It is a strange thing that in sea voyages, where there is nothing to be seen but
sky and sea, men should make diaries, but in land travel wherein so much is to be
observed, for the most part they omit it; as if chance were fitter to be registered
than observation : let diaries therefore be brought into use."-LORD BACON.
