Excerpt from Journal of a Tour and Residence in Great Britain, Vol. 1: During the Years 1810 and 1811

The Journal was written in English, because the things and persons the traveller saw were best described in the language of the country, which is become familiar to him by long habit. It was seen in England by a few friends, who read parts of it with interest, and, for the first time in his life, the idea entered his mind of writing a book He does not mean to throw any respon sibility on his friends; none of them pressed him to publish he did not yield to their solicitations and he alone is answerable for the consequences; alarming as they may be. He was, indeed, encou: raged by the consideration that no French travels in England had come to his knowledge deserving of notice. M. Faujas de St Fond gave'all his attention to minerals; Madame Roland, Madame de Genlis, and Madame de Sta'el, have Spoken incidentally of what they have seen in England, through the medium of their various prejudices, or for effect in works of imagination. In remoter times, the Chevalier Hamilton published only the chronique scandaleuse of a profligate court. Sully thought only of his embassy.
