PUBLISHERS' NOTE.

The substance of this collection of Miss Woolson's sketches of travel in the Mediterranean originally appeared in HARPER'S MAGAZINE. "At Mentone" was published in that periodical in 1884; "Cairo in 1890," and "Corfu and the Ionian Sea," appeared in 1891 and 1892. As presented in this volume, the two sketches last mentioned contain much interesting material not included in their original form as magazine articles.
