the Hawaiian Islands."
To GEORGE H. WILLIAMS, Esq.,
MY DEAR SIR,
WHEN I was in Spain you wrote to me—“See and note as much as you can of that country, for the sake of your friends who cannot be with you, to seek and store up for themselves things about the Occident of olden times. Above all, see and say as much as possible of Granada. The more the better of that Moorish palace's past and present state, and eventful story.”
I inscribe these pages to you; not merely to show that I have striven to gratify your wishes, but also to manifest my sense of your literary culture; which, as liberal as it is large, knows no unkindly criticism, but seeks solely to lighten the burthens of onerous professional pursuits.
Faithfully your friend,
H. WILLIS BAXLEY.
London, December 1, 1874.
