TO MY WIFE,

ALICE D. LE PLONGEON,

my constant companion during my explorations

of the

ruined cities of the mayas,

who,

in order to obtain a glimpse of the history of their builders,

has exposed herself to many dangers,

suffered privations, sickness, hardship;

my faithful and indefatigable collaborator at home;

this work is

affectionately and respectfully dedicated.

AUGUSTUS LE PLONGEON, M.D.


Brooklyn, February 15, 1896.
