Excerpt from Scenes on Pacific Shores: With a Trip Across South America
IN offering to the Public these few imperfect sketches of what the Author saw, did, and heard, while sojourning in the far West, he desires not to lay claim to originality - for he believes that many similar incidents are far better described elsewhere by more able pens than his, and he has trod on no new ground - but to rest his plea for their acceptance on whatever merit they may possess as being, to some extent, the records of a naval officer' 8 life while serving on the Pacific station. He made little or no effort to collect information about persons and places, which a more experienced writer would have done, but contented himself with simply jotting down his own experiences and thoughts, and any little incident communicated to him in an ordinary way which he considered might prove interesting.
