Excerpt from Journey Into Siberia: Made by Order of the King of France

The disposition of this work being considerably changed in the translation; the translator thinks it incumbent upon him to give an account of this alternation, and to offer some reasons for having taken such liberty with the original.

His first intention having been to abridge the work as much as possible, without palling over any material circumstance, he has reduced two volumes into one. In doing this, he has brought together all such parts as are more particularly connected with each other by the matter they treat of, and which are frequently separated in the original. Thus, immediately after the journey from France to Tobolsky, is introduced the return from thence which is at the end of the first volume of the original. The geographical account of Russia is then given, together with the level of the road from Paris to Tobolsky, as it is found in the beginning of the second volume of the original.
