Excerpt from Observations in the East, Vol. 1 of 2: Chiefly in Egypt, Palestine, Syria, and Asia Minor

In regard to topography, the only new view that I offer in these pages is that of the Exode of Israel from Egypt, for which I have suggested a route differing, in part at least, from any other that I have seen. The reader must judge of the value of the suggestion.

My principal guide-book in the Holy Land, besides the Bible, was the Biblical Researches of Messrs. Rob inson and Smith. Their exceeding accuracy was a matter of daily surprise to me in my travels through Palestine; and I must express a deep sense of obligation to such indefatigable and successful observers. I had not then seen Dr. Olin's excellent volumes, which convey a great amount of information, also remarkably accurate. His first volume contains the best account of Egypt that has appeared in this country - perhaps in the language.
