Indian archipelago; for the first I am indebted to Mr. Adam White.

The topographical Map has been based upon Mayo's original survey, which I unhesitatingly adopted when I found how closely the configuration of the coast agreed with Captain Barrallier's trigonometrical survey. Mayo's map has the advantage of delineating the boundaries of the parishes correctly, which is not the case in Barrallier's map. By constructing a series of triangles with an excellent theodolite of Troughton and Simms, it became comparatively easy to me to insert the changes which have taken place since these maps have been published. The size of the map is double what I intended when I issued my prospectus: it contains every sugar-estate possessing a windmill; and the churches and chapels, a number of detached houses, the police-stations, and main roads with the principal branches, have all been laid down.

No person can be more aware of the insufficiency of his work than the author himself. With all my precautions, I find that in several instances I have been misled. I do not wish to claim the reader's indulgence upon the plea that no history is free from error, even where more materials have been at hand to guard against it, but prefer throwing myself unconditionally upon his candour. Wherever I have discovered an error, I have taken the earliest opportunity to correct it.

It has been my endeavour to state the events in the following pages in as plain language as the circumstance of my being a foreigner would permit. If the reader should observe peculiarities in the style, I hope he will excuse them, as arising from the difficulty of writing in a language not acquired in early childhood.

Surbiton, Surrey. November, 1847.
