PREFACE.

The Author of this volume, which is intended as a Manual for all who have to rough it, whether they be explorers, emigrants, missionaries, or soldiers, earnestly invites such of his readers as can speak from actual experience of the matters on which it treats, to furnish him with remarks, sketches, and corrections, as, in the event of a revised edition being published, they would be of the greatest value to him.

They should be addressed to the Author, Care of Mr. MURRAY, Publisher, Albemarle Street, London."
