Excerpt from Myamma: A Retrospect of Life and Travel in Lower Burmah

When my friend asked me to read through these reminiscences in their original form, with a view to editing them, I had to tell him at the outset that the remoteness of the retrospect might probably prove a serious obstacle.

But, being neither a history nor geography, and dealing lightly with a number of topics that should be of interest to many Englishmen, it soon occurred to me that they might perhaps find readers in spite of not being up to date.

It is the fashion nowadays - and it seems to me a some what injudicious practice - to publish the record of one's travels and experiences within a few weeks after re turning home, whereas many opinions that the writer would naturally hold while still under the unsettling in uence of travel, might be at least very considerably modified, were the final proof corrected ten years later, without losing in value.

The present form of these retrospective glances, which skim lightly over half-a-dozen years in some kind of chronological order, has been prepared from a manu script that has during the past two years received many amendments; so that the reader has at least an un biassed account of a few years' official residence in one of the most promising of our Eastern possessions.
