Excerpt from Highways and Byways in South Wales A few prefatory remarks to this book appear to me to be almost imperative if only to explain some apparent sins of omission, or, to come at once to the point and the singular number, the omission of Glamorgan. The title of the volume, it is true, involves it in particular geographical obligations; but I should t like to incur even a suspicion of making light of the abounding attractions, natural and historical, of this great county, or of being igrant of them. The plain fact, however, is that the large area of South Wales, when measured by the exigencies of my space, rendered the omission of a portion of it absolutely inevitable. Monmouthshire, having been for so long technically, if illogically, outside Wales, lent itself to excision at once with out the necessity for comment, and relieved me of part of the difficulty.
