Excerpt from A Narrative of the Siege of Kars: And of the Six Months Resistance by the Turkish Garrison

My first visit was in the spring of 1847, my second in the spring of 1849; and since that time I have never left Turkey until the fall of Kars severed my connexion with that country. I mention this that my readers may not think the few remarks I have ventured to make on the institutions of the country are the fruits of a hasty observa tion or mere hearsay. Still, knowing the extraordinary.
