Excerpt from Contributions to Oriental Literature, or the Leisure Hours, Vol. 1 of 2

It was not my wish to present the public with a volume containing my writings in poetry and prose. But, soon after the appearance of the History of the Sinhalese language, embodied in my Introduction to the Sidat Sangare't, published by me in 1852, a controversy arose regarding some of my remarks on the inconsiderate criticism of the late lamented Dhammaratana, the renowned poet of Miripenna, on the Poem entitled The ganga-rohana, from which selections had been inserted in the Grammar That controve'rsy awakened a spirit of inquiry previously unknown in Ceylon; and roused the dormant powers of a number of native scholars, who had been unknown to me, and had been content to re main buried in the obscurity and seclusion of their village Pansalas.
