Samenvatting

Excerpt from Narrative of a Five Years Expedition, Against the Revolted Negroes of Surinam, in Guiana, on the Wild Coast of South America, Vol. 1: From the Year 1772, to 1777
This Work being perhaps one of the most singular productions ever offered to the Public, I think it right to give the Reader a short sketch of what he is going to peruse. - I have endeavoured to arrange matters in some degree like a large garden, where one meets with the sweet-smelling flower and the thorn, the gold-bespangled fly and loathsome reptile, the richest glowing plumage and the darkest shades; the whole so variegated as to afford, I hope, both information and amusement, without racking or depressing the spirits, and damping the mind; not indeed in the modern pomp and brilliancy of style, but in a simple tale, where truth is the chief ornament.
