Excerpt from The Captivity of Hans Stade of Hesse, in A. D. 1547-1555, Among the Wild Tribes of Eastern Brazil
Stade new steps forth and delivers his testimony about a people who were literally ¿eshed with human meat.
I must apologise to Mr. Tootal for long delay in ... my share of the work. The translation was finished in 1869, and it was taken to Syria for the purpose of adding an Introduction and a few explanatory Notes. But I unexpectedly found at Damascus duties and studies that occupied the whole of my time, and the various troubles to which allusion has been made in Unexplored Syria, left me as little will as leisure for the work. When suddenly recalled from my post, friends advised me to try the tonic effects of a summer in Iceland; in fact, until the present moment, when settled pro tempore at trieste,i have lacked opper tunity to fulfil my humble part of the contract.
