PREFACE.

VOLUME VII.

Anybody can write a book-but to write a "preface"-ah! there's the rub.

To produce a hiyu telicum preface is no easy matter, and we would dodge the task were it not necessary for us, while among the Romans, to conform to Roman customs. We know a preface is usually looked upon by the public in the light of an apology, wherein the author is expected to explain, 1st.-Why he did not do better; and, 2d.-Why he wrote at all. In answer to these, we would say:

FIRST.-We have spared neither time, pains or money to make this a perfect book. Our statements are concise, plain, unadorned, and, we believe, truthful in every particular. Yet, we would shudder at the charge of being absolutely perfect, as we do not want to chance the consequences.

SECOND. We wrote this book for Money and Love. For MONEY to help the poor-not that we need a cent. For LOVE of the Far Western Country-the land of the "Golden Fleece." For love of its broad plains and lofty mountains, its free pure air, healthful climate, magnificent scenery, unrivalled resources, and its unaffected, whole-souled people.

The descriptions cover a scope of country over two thousand miles in length, and hundreds of miles in width; a vast empire as it were; a country that only a few years ago was almost wholly unexplored and unknown to the white race. But since the completion of the Pacific Railroad it has been occupied by over half a million of the most adventurous, active, honest, and progressive white people that the world can produce-people that are building cities, towns and villages as though by magic; prospecting, discovering and developing the great treasure chambers of the continent, extending our grand system of railroads and telegraphs all over the country, like a vast net-work; or engaged in the cultivation of the inexhaustible soil, which is literally causing the wilderness to "blossom like the rose. Where such mighty changes are taking place so rapidly, it would indeed be a wonder if some of the numberless improvements that are in progress were not omitted. Yet we think there are few, if any, of sufficient importance to be of interest to the tourist, but what some mention can be found at the proper place in this volume; but, from the limited space, the descriptions are necessarily short, only touching on the most important facts.

FINALLY, we shall take the reader with us from the far East to the far West-from the Atlantic to the Pacific; from where the sun rises out of the water to where it sets in the water; and leave him facing the Orient of ancient story.
