Excerpt from The Naturalist in La Plata

Tan plan I have followed in this little work has been to sift and arrange the facts I have gathered concerning the habits of the animals best known to me, preserving those only, which, in my judg ment, appeared worth recording. In some in stances a variety of subjects have linked themselves together in my mind, and have been grouped under one heading; consequently the scope of the book is not indicated by the list of contents this want is, however, made good by an index at the end.

It is seldom an easy matter to give a suitable name to a book of this description. I am con scious that the one I have made choice of displays a lack of originality; also, that this kind of title has been used hitherto for works constructed more or less on the plan of the famous Naturalist on flu Amazons. After I have made this apology the reader, on his part, will readilv admit that, in treating of the Natural History of a district so well known, and often described as the southern portion of La Plata, which has a temperate climate, and where nature is neither exuberant nor grand, a personal narrative would have seemed super fluous.
