      My current career as an erotic romance author started about two and half years ago. Between two and three years after the adventures recorded in this volume, I chanced, while aboard of a man-of-war to touch at these islands. The house was so situated as to command an uninterrupted view of Greylock Mountain and the adjacent hills. Your delightful books carry the imagination into a maritime period so remote that, often as you have been in my mind, I could never satisfy myself that you were still amongst the living. Mayo's 'Kaloolah,' the enchanting dreams of many a youthful heart, will retain their charm; and this in spite of endless variations by modern explorers in the same domain. A regiment of the Old Guard, reviewed on a summer's day in the Champs Elysees, could not have made a more critically correct appearance.

      Titus Munson Coan, whose familiarity with the languages of the Pacific has enabled me to harmonise the spelling of foreign words in Typee and Omoo, though without changing the phonetic method of printing adopted by Mr. Melville, on the other hand, was of distinctly patrician birth, his paternal and maternal grandfathers having been leading characters in the Revolutionary War; their descendants still maintaining a dignified social position. Melville's appointment to a custom-house position, and they at once became acquainted. The manuscript was printed in a complete form in England, and created much discussion on this account, Melville being accused of bitterness; but he asserted his lack of prejudice. He held the position untilpreferring it to in-door clerical work, and then resigned, the duties becoming too arduous for his failing strength. Melville's pen had rested for nearly ten years, when it was again taken up to celebrate the events of the Civil War.

      He is reported to have been a Conservative in all matters except his opposition to unjust taxation, and he wore the old-fashioned cocked hat and knee-breeches until his death, inthus becoming the original of Doctor Holmes's poem, 'The Last Leaf'. Such strange outcries and passionate gesticulations I never certainly heard or saw before. As told in the book, Melville met with more than the usual hardships of a sailor-boy's first venture. The hostile clans, residing in the more remote sections of the island, and very seldom holding any communication with foreigners, are in every respect unchanged from their earliest known condition. This house belonged to his brother Allan, and was exchanged for the estate at Pittsfield. There he remained for four months, employed as a clerk.

Those who for the first time visit the South Sea, generally are surprised at the appearance of the islands when beheld from the sea. That he sometimes realised the situation will be seen by a passage in 'Moby Dick':— 'Didn't The romance of the South Seas book tell you so?

Melville from early manhood indulged deeply in philosophical studies, and his fondness for discussing such matters is pointed out by Hawthorne also, in the English Note Books. The immediate acceptance of 'Typee' by John Murray was followed by an arrangement with the London agent of an American publisher, for its simultaneous publication in the United States.

Melville's power in describing and investing with romance scenes and incidents witnessed and participated in by himself, and his frequent failure of success as an inventor of characters and situations, were early pointed out by his critics.
