" In vain may tropic climes display Their glittering shores-their gorgeous shells; Though bright birds wing their dazzling way, And glorious flowers adorn the dells, Though nature there prolific pours The treasures of her magic hand, The eye, but not the heart, adores- The heart still beats for native land."-Lover. Having obtained two months' leave of absence, he came home in the middle of April. Fully aware of the risks he would run in China from the unhealthiness of the climate, his father was most anxious to try to effect an exchange for him. But he would not hear of it. He said that when he entered the service he made up his mind to go wherever he was ordered.

On the 2cth of June he sailed from Southampton. He writes on that date: - On Board The Ceylon, At Southampton. I embarked to-day, as you may see. I like the ship very much. She is beautifully clean, and not at all crowded, there being only twenty-four first-class passengers. Nearly every one has a cabin to himself. There is a young fellow in the Bengal Engineers with me. Everything looks bright, and we have every prospect of a pleasant voyage. . I met several friends in London, home on leave from Gibraltar. The Exhibition is a great success. . We expect to arrive at Suez about the 4th of July, and in Ceylon about the 22nd. . He continued to write home constantly during the voyage. On Board S.S.
