    Excerpt from Walks and Wanderings in County Cardigan: Being a Descriptive Sketch of Its Picturesque, Historic, Antiquarian, Romantic and Traditional Features

    The vast storehouse of material upon Cardiganshire has been little worked until quite recent times. My original intention was to intro duce chapters upon unique features of Cardiganshire life - the farm, the mine, the superstitions, folklore and ancient customs; but these have assumed proportions vast enough for another volume, and I re luctantly leave them in script. Thus has it fared with nonconformity, though an appendix yields a basis for further work. Lists of Mayors of Aberystwyth and Cardigan are available from early Stuart days, and of Lampeter names of port-reeves before 1800 and mayors after 1832, but the already increased bulk of the volume has excluded these invaluable data. Those interested in Aberystwyth will find ample suggestion in Mr. Eyre Evans' recent labours, and the great Abbeyfs. Exploration was chronicled by the explorer. The Sheriffs long ago met with their recorder, and the enu-ogion (worthies) were honoured in the biographies of Gwynionydd and Glan Menai. Literature on the Mines has been somewhat extensive.

    My Obligations are due to the Countess of Lisburne for permission to reproduce the portrait of the present Earl; to Mrs. Johnes and Lady hills-johnes for the loan Of various engravings, portraits, etc.; to Major Edw. W. D. Evans, j.p. For the account of the Militia to Mr. S. Wert Adams for valuable information on Cardigan town; to Principal Bebb of Lampeter, Principal Salmon of Swansea, Mr. Hall of Aberystwyth, Messrs. Thomas of Cardigan and Mr. D. Thomas of barrow-on-soar, for assistance in the matter Of views; to my father, Without whose ready advice the volume would not have been written, and other relatives, in addition to those referred to continually in the text and foot-notes.

    As level England has been formed geologically by the deposition of mere waste material from the surface Of the Welsh mountains, so my book may appear to the Cymro mere alluvia from the inexhaustible hills; but I may surely reply that the English meadows bear fruit more readily than the untilled mountain land, and through its imper fections, of which I am but too keenly sensible, my volume may usher in a nobler attempt to delineate this isolated and almost inaccessible country.
