Excerpt from Two Happy Years in Ceylon What can be the reason that writers on Ceylon seem impelled to describe their book as a term of years? - 'Fifty Years in Ceylon.' An Autobiography by Major Thomas Skinner. 'Eleven Years in Ceylon.' By Major Forbes, 78th Highlanders. 'Eight Years in Ceylon.' By Sir Samuel Baker. 'Seven Years in Ceylon.' By Mary and Margaret Leitch, - and finally, 'Two Happy Years in Ceylon,' by C. F. Gordon Cumming, who had so named her notes of pleasant days in the fair Isle, before realising that any of her predecessors had thus described their longer terms of residence therein? I can only ascribe it to the fact, so evident in each of these works, that the several writers have retained such sweet memories of 'Moonlit seas, Of dreamy sunsets, and of balmy air, Of glowing landscapes and of shadowy bowers Where stately palms low murmur in the breeze,' - that they have loved to enumerate the months and years that glided by amid such pleasant influences.

It was in the year 1845 that the spirit of wandering allured me toward Ceylon: little did I imagine at that time that I should eventually become a settler. (Excerpt)

The Story Of The Portuguese In Ceylon Is Of More Than Local Interest, For It Depicts For Us A Characteristic Phase Of The Beginning Of European Expansion In The East. A Hundred And Fifty Three Years After The Portuguese First Landed In Ceylon They Were Expelled From The Country, Leaving The Gloomy Word Failure Writ Large Over All Their Actions. That However Was Not All, For They Left The Sinhalese A Broken Race, With Their Ancient Civilization Brought Ot The Verge Of Ruin, And Their Scheme Of Life Well-Nigh Destroyed.
