Excerpt from An Account of the Interior of Ceylon, and of Its Inhabitants: With Travels in That Island
The substance of the three first chapters, on the physical state of the Island in general, and on some particular branches of natural history, is the result Of my own enquir... ies, enriched by the contributions of some medical friends.
The information contained in the fourth, fifth, and sixth chap ters, on the Political Condition Of the Interior, and on its Old Form of Government, was obtained from native sources; principally from Kandyan chiefs high in office, and conversant with business, and who were constantly in attendance at the court Of the dethroned monarch.
