TO THE RIGHT REVEREND
G. J. MOUNTAIN, D.D., D.O.L.,
LORD BISHOP OF QUEBEC.
very kind notice which you were pleased to take of the letters transmitted by me, from the Holy Land, to different members of my family, is one of the chief causes that induce me to preserve and enlarge the hurried notes, marked down on the spot, during portions of my recent tour to the interesting regions of the East.
Similar reasons may now, I hope, be pleaded, together with a desire of influencing others to take the same route, for appearing before the public.
It will thus be seen, that your Lordship is, to a certain extent, responsible for the rashness which has prompted the publication of the following pages; for certainly had it not been for your kind expressions of approbation, and the favorable encouragement of indulgent friends, I searcely would have revised or expanded my rough notes for a wider circulation.
I beg to thank your Lordship for the convincing proof, which you have afforded, of the sincerity of your friendly sentiments in permitting me to dedicate the result of my efforts to one, who is as mueh distinguished for his extensive scholarship and literary attainments, as he is esteemed for his piety, and for the zeal which he has always evinced for the interests of the Church in British North America.
I have the honor to be,
J. BELL FORSYTH. Quebec, May, 1861.
