The Lake Country

Excerpt from The Lake Country I wish to express now my most grateful thanks to Thomas Wright, Esq., m.a., f.r.s. &c., for an amount of kindly help, rare even in the literary world where there is so much genuine kindness. He took infinite pains to render my Early History free from faults, and he did this with a fulness and frankness of generosity that enhanced even the value of his scientific aid. To Edward Hull, Esq., &c., I would also add my best thanks for relieving me of the responsibility of the geological chapter, to the great improvement of the work, which has gained so much by his accurate knowledge. Of the engravings I cannot speak, as can be easily understood, because of the relations between the artist and myself I may however say that all the sketches were made expressly for this work during our rambles, and that they have the merit of absolute fidelity for the rest, they will speak for themselves more eloquently than the most florid praises could. The Botanical notices and the Glossary I think will be found to be fuller and more correct than any yet published; and I have only to lament the want of authority in the comparative tables of lakes and waterfalls, which want however I had no possible means of supplying.
