Excerpt from The Silken East, Vol. 1: A Record of Life and Travel in Burma
Almost the whole of this book is new; but the chapter on the Irrawaddy Defiles appeared first in Tim Century Magazine (new York), and some account of my cruise in the Mergui Archipelago was given by me... in Tim Pioneer newspaper (allahabad). I am obliged to their Editors for permission to republish these articles here. To my friend Mr. Henry W. Cave, whose books on Ceylon have long been a delight to lovers of Eastern life and scenery, I am obliged for the perusal of the final proof-sheets of this book, and for many other kindnesses.
