" If you will have a young man to put his travels into a little room, and in short
time to gather much, this you must do : first, as was said, he must have some entrance
into the language before he goeth; then he must have such a servant or tutor as
knoweth the country, as was likewise said ; let him carry with him also some card,
or book, describing the country where he travelleth, which will be a good key to his
inquiry ; let him also keep a diary."-Bacon.

PREFACE.

With pleasant recollections of the Author's fellow

voyagers: Whether, as some, they have since manfully fought the

battle of life, and having acquired power and repute,

are now moulding the destinies of future empires;Or, as some, are laboriously toiling among the heathen,

teaching the pure truths of Christianity, and living

its bright exemplars;Or, as others, have passed away, leaving on the mind a

tranquil image of their existence, as the memory of

a happy dream: In honor of the sea he loves ;To present, as in a phantasmagory, to dwellers at home,

by their own firesides, pictures of the world beneath

their feet ;That youthful sea travellers may know the ways of

Ocean;

Is this small book written.

The little bark being thus launched, may the favouring gale of public approval waft it gently onward down the stream of time.
