1891. Illustrated and now First Printed, this work is compiled from "Private Letters". From the Preface: The following pages are offered to the public in the belief that the Colonial experiences they record are of sufficient interest to justify their transcription from a series of private letters written twenty years ago. It is not claimed for the book that the adventures it contains are specially remarkable, or that many men now living are not more competent to speak of the ups and downs of colonial life than the three writers of these letters: it is rather as presenting a picture of the life of young Englishmen who have knocked about a little before settling down - a picture the interest of which, perhaps, lies in its being fairly typical of many thousands of cases - that these sketches have been put into print.
