              It is found at last that both the existence of Egypt itself, and its strange insulation in the midst of boundless tracts of dry and barren sand, depend upon certain remarkable results of the general laws of rain. The water which is taken up by the atmosphere from the surface of t...he sea and of the land by evaporation, falls again, under certain circumstances, in showers of rain, the frequency and copiousness of which vary very much in different portions of the earth. As a general principle, rains are much more frequent and abundant near the equator than in temperate climes, and they grow less and less so as we approach the poles. This might naturally have been expected; for, under the burning sun of the equator, the evaporation of water must necessarily go on with immensely greater rapidity than in the colder zones, and all the water which is taken up must, of course, again come down.

              IF the readers of this volume will be so kind as to take their credentials for the different places whichare the subject of its author's reminiscences, from the Author himself, perhaps they may visit them, in fancy, the more agreeably, and with a better understanding of what they... are to expect.Many books have been written upon Italy, affording many means of studying the history of thatinteresting country, and the innumerable associations entwined about it. I make but little referenceto that stock of information; not at all regarding it as a necessary consequence of my having hadrecourse to the storehouse for my own benefit, that I should reproduce its easily accessible contentsbefore the eyes of my readers.Neither will there be found, in these pages, any grave examination into the government ormisgovernment of any portion of the country. No visitor of that beautiful land can fail to have astrong conviction on the subject; but as I chose when residing there, a Foreigner, to abstain from thediscussion of any such questions with any order of Italians, so I would rather not enter on theinquiry now. During my twelve months' occupation of a house at Genoa, I never found thatauthorities constitutionally jealous were distrustful of me; and I should be sorry to give themoccasion to regret their free courtesy, either to myself or any of my countrymen
