Printed for W. FLEXNEY, Warwick Court, Holborn.
THE Author of the Narrative died lately abroad, and the manuscripts, from which the following extracts have been made, were found among his papers by his executor. None of them are dated, but it appears from several circumstances, that they were written recently, and intended for anonymous publication. They are so voluminous, that it would be too expensive to print the whole of each of them : The Editor therefore humbly hopes, that the extracts be offers will not be unacceptable to the public ; especially as the subjects, on which they are written, are in themselves highly important, and the Author of the Narrative, who, during a long course of travelling, bad many accurate and interesting views of the human character, has expressed high approbation of the writers of the letters.
