Excerpt from A Defence of Russia and the Christians of Turkey; Including a Sketch of the Eastern Question, From 1686 to September, 1877, With Its Best Solution

Defence of Russia, and on my speeches in Caithness, I avail myself of an unexpected delay which has occurred in the publication of the complete bound and illustrated edition of my work to make a few remarks in reply.

Being, like Paul Jones, grateful for praise, spontaneous and unbought, I cordially thank some of those who have done me the honour of noticing my book, for the kindly, genial, and sometimes only too ?attering way in which they have criticised it; whilst adverse critics have sometimes Shown a disposition to give me fair play 5 and even those who are most hostile, by the prominence they have given to my publication in their columns and their unspar ing antagonism, may perhaps do my work more good in the eyes of an impartial public than a portion of those who are friendly to my production, but some of these wiseacres persist in calling my work of upwards of 500 pages a pamphlet, because, like all French works, the cheap edition is issued in paper covers.
