Excerpt from Glimpses of Life in Bermuda and the Tropics

'... To wander far away,
On from island unto island, to the gateways of the day.

'Larger constellations burning, mellow moons and happy skies,
Breadth of tropic shade and palms to cluster, knots of Paradise.

'Droops the heavy blossomed bower, hangs the heavy fruited tree,
Summer isles of Eden

Excerpt from Glimpses of Life in Bermuda and the Tropics

'... To wander far away,
On from island unto island, to the gateways of the day.

'Larger constellations burning, mellow moons and happy skies,
Breadth of tropic shade and palms to cluster, knots of Paradise.

'Droops the heavy blossomed bower, hangs the heavy fruited tree,
Summer isles of Eden lying in dark purple spheres of sea.'

Locksley Hall.

It is with the utmost diffidence I venture to offer these very inadequate descriptions of some of the glorious scenes I visited in the West Indies to the public. My friends both there and here have continually urged that I should write an account of my travels and adventures in regions not yet generally known, and perhaps few strangers have visited quite so many 'out-of-the-way' places, or seen so much of the natives in their homes, as I have done. It is with awe I venture to record some of the countless impressions made by nature in these islands upon my memory.
