GENERAL, SIR EDWARD BARNES, G. C. B.
LATE GOVERNOR AND COMMANDER IN CHIEF IN CEYLON.
In dedicating this volume to you, as the Governor of Ceylon, to whom I am chiefly indebted for the opportunities and facilities which were afforded to me, to prosecute the research which has led to this publication, I cannot allow so appropriate an occasion to pass without assuring you, that I bear in distinct and gratified recollection the many obligations conferred upon me, as well in your private as your public capacity, during the long period I had the honor of serving under you in this colony.
With sentiments, therefore, of the sincerest respect and regard, I subscribe myself,
KANDY, CEYLON, 31 May, 1837.
Your very faithful and obliged servant,
