Excerpt from From Independence Hall Around the World

Nowadays, when the facilities of travel on the one hand, and of publication on the other, have made both a voyage around the globe and the printing of its narrative a common-place matter, there is need of something in the way of an apology for the bringing out of another book of this kind.

Apart from the fact that Judge Brewster's notes of his journey, originally made only as private memoranda, have been published in response, primarily, to many requests to that end, a broader reason for the present work will be found by the reader in the freshness and simplicity of the voyager's recital, in its freedom from the conventional spirit of traveler's tales, in its pointed expression of unbiased views regarding the places and the peoples that he describes. The chronicle of Judge Brewster's journey is clearly that of a keen observer, whose considerations are the reflections of a disciplined mind, whose statements are those of an unprepossessed reporter, and whose narrative is presented as a simple and unvarnished tale.
