Excerpt from Alone Through Syria
The proofs of Miss Miller's book have reached me in a place which is, perhaps, the fittest of all others in which to read them. Moored to a bank below the ruined temple of Luxor, I have no need of calling in the aid of imagination to assist me... in realizing the scenes she depicts. Here they are actually around me, in the blue sky overhead, the broad river beneath, and the green fields, and yellow sand and purple cliffs, by the side of which it ¿ows eternally. That her words adequately convey the impressions of the moment is more than sufficient justification for the appearance of her work.
