I gladly respond to the request of my friend Dr. Veatch to preface with an introductory note the absorbing pages in which he has richly elaborated his diaries Of a journey we made together through the Republics of Ecuador and Colombia, the grandeur of whose scenery has for ever im pressed itself upon my mind. I am not without hope that these pages will prove of interest not only to geologists, geographers, lovers of scenery and nature, but to that por tion of the reading public to whom journeyings in little travelled countries peculiarly appeal.
