Excerpt from Reminiscences of Seventy Years Life, Travel, and Adventure, Military and Civil, Scientific and Literary, Vol. 1 of 2

Having passed my seventieth year, and led a life of remarkable vicissitude, the greater part of which has been spent in the Public Service, I venture to hope that a record of my experiences may be interesting to many of my fellow-countrymen. I have travelled far and near. My earliest foreign travels were in the East, and were chiefly on foot in the ranks of the army. So many changes have since been made in the service that a sketch of A soldier's life and its surroundings in India fifty years ago may be of some value, as an illustration of what our rank and file had then to go through in that country. To such a sketch this volume is chiefly devoted. As will be seen, I had literary predilections even at an early age, and my experience in India as a barrack-room author is in some respects unique. It will be observed that I have ever loved to visit historic scenes, and to follow the footsteps of those who have become famous. Some events, moreover, in which I took part, and which are yet fresh in my memory, have an abiding national interest.

I must not omit to allude to one object of special importance to which, in this section of my travels, I have devoted considerable attention.
