Excerpt from Loiterings of Travel, Vol. 1 of 3 If you could manage, O most amiable reader! to forget that this is "a book" - call it a rummage of a portfolio-pocket - a chat with a traveller - wile-time in a calm at sea - pick-brains over a bottle! Of all the "five gates of the soul," the eye is so much the most difficult to enter. These be the stories I have told over inn fires - just as I told them.I would have you fill up, and make allowance, as fellow-travellers do - no criticism, but "How very odd!" "Quite a romance!" "Singular thing to happen now-a-days!" About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
