Excerpt from Eight Years in British Guiana: Being the Journal of a Residence in That Province, From 1840 to 1849, Inclusive

As the following pages contain within themselves evidence that they were not designed for publication, it is necessary to explain some circumstances which led to their being laid before the public. The writer felt deeply the situation he was placed in, and became soon firmly of opinion that the policy adopted towards our sugar colonies would end in their ruin. He felt also that, notwithstanding his apprehensions, he had not resolution to withdraw in time from the vortex which a West India estate has been since 1838, into which all the wealth possessed by the proprietor, apart from itself, must be drawn. It will be seen from the journal, that this singular state of mind occurs to himself occasionally, and that a twinge of remorse comes across him when he reflects on the folly of continuing year after year to lay out a large sum in addition to his crop, in order to keep his estate in cultivation, until it became too late to effect a sale. The same strange feeling prevailed extensively, and still prevails among planters.
