Excerpt from An Account of Discoveries in Lycia: Being a Journal Kept During a Second Excursion in Asia Mir ON my visit to Asia Mir in 1838, of which I gave an account in my former Journal, I found that the district of ancient Lycia was so rich in all that is most inter esting to the traveller, that, my time then allowing of only a short excursion into it, I could t but feel a strong desire to return at a future day, and explore it more carefully. This desire was increased when, on reaching England, I learned how completely unkwn this country is to modern travellers, and how much importance the learned attached to many of my discoveries.
