Description

Excerpt from A Visit to the Indians of Orialla: Together With Two Sermons on the Destruction, by Fire, of "the Amazon," on the Midnight of January 3, 1852, in the Bay of Biscay, Preached by Him on the First Sunday After Landing From His Escape From the Burning Wreck The writer, it will be observed, has not any of the stirring adventures of the enter prising traveller to recount; nor is it his design to narrate any very novel or remark able facts. But his narrative derives an interest from the circumstance of his faith fully and graphically delineating the Objects that met his eye on his route and whenever this is done, a story, whatever it may be, however unexciting, will always have the freshness and charm of truth to recommend it.
