NOTE TO THE SECOND EDITION.

FOR the benefit of other lady travellers, I wish to explain that my “Hawaiian riding dress” is the “American Lady's Mountain Dress,” a half-fitting jacket, a skirt reaching to the ankles, and full Turkish trousers gathered into frills falling over the boots,—a thoroughly serviceable and feminine costume for mountaineering and other rough travelling, as in the Alps or any other part of the world.

I.L.B.

November 27, 1879.
