[ocr errors][ocr errors][merged small][merged small]

PREFACE.

The materials of this Narrative have been derived from Audubon's works/from the recollections of his friends, and from fragments published in the United States. The writer's object has been, exclusively, to follow the adventurous American through those episodes of Romance and Discovery which constituted his career as a Naturalist. To the criticisms of Waterton and others, on his Ornithology, all reference has been omitted, to avoid controversy on points of scientific detail.

St. John's Wood, January 25th.
