PREFACE.

WHEN all the world was flocking last year to Russia, I went there also, and purposed to have written a book descriptive of my travels. On second thoughts, however, remembering that many erudite works have already appeared about the Empire of the Czar, I came to the conclusion that my young friends, whom it is my ambition to please, would prefer an account of the adventures of Cousin Giles and the Markhams, and I have therefore undertaken this publication. With few exceptions, I can corroborate all their descriptions from my own personal observations, and it will give me much satisfaction to find that the book is as welcome as the “ Adventures of Neil D'Arcy,” “Peter the Whaler," and other acquaintances who have entrusted their journals to my care.
