THE Translator congratulates the public upon the arrival among us of the distinguished traveller whose Journal he here presents, done into English, The portrait of our country has never yet been correctly taken by any of the crowd of foreigners that have attempted it. The contemptible caricatures drawn by British tourists served the purpose for which they were designed of deceiving the English people. They have served another purpose which was not intended. They have gone far toward destroying the authority of British writers in general, and of British travellers in particular. They have betrayed a deep rooted national grudge, which although an indirect tribute to our country, has been met, it must be confessed, by somewhat fiercer feelings on this side of the Atlantic.
