In bringing this little work before the public, the Author has to request more than usual indulgence at the hands of his readers. The pressing calls upon his time, and the impossibility of delaying his departure for the scene of his duties in a distant land, have prevented his being able to give as much attention to the final revision of this work as he could have desired. Some errors, in such circumstances, and in a work of this character, are almost unavoidable; but the Author hopes they will be found to be neither numerous, nor of much importance.
