PREFACE.

appeared to me of less interest, as not being connected with the original, and, I may say, only object of our journey, an Exploration of the Ruined Cities of Central America, the appointment of Mr. Stephens as Special Confidential Agent from the United States to Central America, having taken place but a very short time previous to our leaving, and after all our arrangements were completed.


Should this volume be favourably received, it will be followed by a continuation of our travels in Yucatan in the years 1841, 1842.
