THE following Letters from Europe begin, abruptly, at Paris. It was the Author's original intention to have given his Countrymen an opportunity of beholding the rival Empires of France and England, as they appear to an American Eye: but finding his principles canvassed, with suspicion, by the wakeful prejudices of Party (which he is rather disposed to allay than to foment) he now offers to the Public that Part only of his European Tour, to which political objections cannot so readily apply. Should it meet with a favourable reception, he may yet be induced to prepare for the Press his Letters from England and France—those interesting Countries which, however frequently described by European Travellers, have never yet been depicted by an American Tourist.
