Excerpt from Arabistan, or the Land of "the Arabian Nights": Being Travels Through Egypt, Arabia, and Persia, to Bagdad
My motive in visiting these countries was not merely the pursuit of pleasure, but a desire to gratify a long-cherished wish, I might almost say a passion, t... o see, at least once in my lifetime, the strange and curious nations of the Orient, which have always had for me a strange fascination.
The excuse of ordinary travelers who write books, was not mine. I was not ordered abroad by the doctors, but started in perfect health, which I retained through all the vicissitudes of scene and climate, and I may add that I met with no serious mishap to mar the pleasure of the journey.
