Excerpt from Travels and Researches in Crete, Vol. 1 of 2 Several journeys were made by me through Crete, during the progress of its survey, in company with some Of the officers or alone, either with the View to co-operate in parts Of its detail, or to collect reliable information regarding the local names, population, and ancient cities, many of them being as yet undis covered or undescribed, and in consequence having an important connexion with the completion of its gee graphical and topographical description. The results of the journeys are brie y thrown together in the following chapters. The most gratifying part of an important work or task is when the director and responsible head of it has it in his power to do full justice to the zeal and ability of those whom he has had the good fortune to have under his command during its progress.
