Beschreibung:

This story of my sister's life was the work of her first two years at Alderley. She put it into the hands of her friend, Sir Joseph Hooker, who undertook to negotiate with Messrs. Macmillan for its publication. They agreed to take it upon condition of certain retrenchments, which she was then far too ill to make, and the manuscript was put by till after her death. As it now stands, her earlier journeys in Europe, Egypt, and Syria have been cut out entirely and the first chapters compressed. The later and most interest ing journeys remain, except for minor points, which had to be revised, just as she left them. By the advice of her oldest friend (and my own), Mr. Francis Galton, the spelling of Indian names and places has been altered to the system now adopted by the Government of India. These chapters have been kindly revised for me by our friend and neighbour here, Major General M. R. Haig. Mr. Galton had the still more puzzling names of Java verified and corrected for the book at the Royal Geographical Society.
