Excerpt: ... CHAPTER I. PRELIMINARY CAUTION--ATLANTIC LINERS--RESPECT FOR THE OLD COUNTRY--COURTESY AND ATTENTION OF OUR AMERICAN COUSINS. 0 much has already been written about America that it might seem almost impossible to say anything more that is either new or interesting on the subject. No country, however, undergoes such rapid and marvellous changes. Wherefore it happens, that what may be true of it one decade may be very unlike the truth the next. For instance, many of the descriptions which Dickens gave to the public in his "American Notes," except in so far as they apply to some of the aspects of nature, are now totally inaccurate. And even the aspects of nature, as civilization spreads further and further among the primeval forests or over the far-reaching prairies, are subject to the law of change.

Men have gone to America with prejudices against democratic institutions, and returned without them; while an operation altogether the reverse of this has been produced in the case of other wanderers. For my part, I have here put down, with all honesty of purpose, the thoughts and ideas that suggested themselves during a few weeks' sojourn among our friendly and hospitable cousins. But I ought to disclaim beforehand any right or authority to speak dogmatically about anything. All I wish to do is to place on record my own experiences of a great and free country, whether they coincide with those of anybody else or not. Let me add, too, that the statements I may make are applicable only to the limited area I have seen and traversed. The territory of America is so vast, and its climate and productions are so varied, that it is practically a world in itself--a world of wondrous intere.
