150 INTRODUCTION. IF a huge volume taken at random from a new Encyclopaedia were to be thrust before you, and, just as you get interested in one article, the pages were suddenly turned over to the middle of another, and then a second volume given to you next day, and a third the day after, and so on every day, with the same sud den compulsory changes, for weeks together if you were tossed on the wide Atlantic for a fortnight in a steamer to settle this confusion, and then asked, on your landing, to give a rational account of the best articles in the book, you would be very like a traveller who has been three months in America, and straightway sits down to indite his views at home.
