Two years ago to-day we embarked at Ville Franche for Italy, Egypt, the Holy Land, Asia Minor, and the islands of the Mediterranean - a journey that in time was to extend around the world. In closing my narrative of that journey I recall many events which will live with the history of our time, many days of pageantry and splendor, many scenes of beauty, antiquity, and renown. I am conscious that my printed chronicle will appear feeble and cold to one who saw what I have endeavored to describe. But to have had the honor of telling that story, even in a barren fashion, to have been the companion of yourself and your illustrious husband, I regard as a supreme privilege. Now that my work is done, and our journey around the world becomes a memory, I dwell on nothing with more pleasure than that grace, kindness, and courtesy, that consideration for all, which was ever present to every member of our party, and which brightened many a weary hour of travel. As a token of my grateful remembrance I dedicate to you, Madam, this work, and ask you to accept it as a tribute of my friendship and esteem.
