Excerpt from An Excursion to the Highlands of Scotland and the English Lakes: With Recollections, Descriptions, and References to Historical Facts
IN sending you this hasty sketch of our short but agreeable excursion, I merely fulfil my engagement.
Should your friend... s derive any amuse ment from the perusal, to you only their thanks are due, for without your injunction I should not have committed my remarks to writing.
Whatever is erroneous, or frivolous, must be wholly attributed to me: but among my foibles include not the vanity of my sup posing, that the following pages can aspire to the rank of a regular composition. My chief purpose in the publication is attained, in thus expressing the value that I set on your friendship, and the respect which I feel for your character.
