Excerpt from Travels in Various Countries of Europe, Asia, and Africa, Vol. 2: Greece, Egypt, and the Holy Land
When the author published the first volume of these Travels, he proposed to divide the work into three por tions. The observations made in Greece, Syria, and Egypt, were reserved for the astond part whether con sisting of one volume, or of more than one. This plan ii still pursuetf; but from the very perplexed state of the geography of the country alluded to by the word Syria the less exec tionable appellation of Palestine was sub stituted, in t e second edition, for that of Syria. The same perplexity has again induced the author to alter what he had thus written, and to consider the present pub lication as containing observations made in Greece, Egypt, and the Holy Land.
