VOLUME NINE

 

To Alexander Baird of Urie.

 

My Dear Baird,

I avail myself of a privilege of authorship, not yet utterly obsolete, to place your name at the head of this volume. Your long residence in Egypt and your extensive acquaintance with its "politic," private and public, make you a thoroughly competent judge of the merits and demerits of this volume; and encourage me to hope that in reading it you will take something of the pleasure I have had in writing it.

Ever yours sincerely,

Richard F. Burton.

 

Tangier,

December 31, 1885.
