Preface.

THE Journal of my father, giving an account of his passage over the Blue Mountains in 1813, and published in London in 1823, is no longer to be had. Frequent enquiries have been made for it; and recently I have discovered a stray copy. There is but one survivor of the expedition—W. C. WENTWORTH, Esq.; and in order to perpetuate the memory of the successful exploration of my father and his companions, I reprint his Journal, with his original dedication of it to his uncle.

JOHN BLAXLAND.

Ryde, January, 1870.
