Excerpt from With the Greeks in Thessaly
Mr. W. T. Maud, the very accomplished artist of the Grapkz'c, was my good comrade in many of the most stirring scenes of the campaign, and I had the pleasure Of watching him, Often under fire, making his powerful and picturesque sketches. Through the courtesy of the Proprietors Of the Graphic, my publishers have been able to repro duce many of his beautiful pictures. Other Of the illustrations have been drawn for the present publication from Mr. Maud's rough sketches.
The plans Of the battles of Mati, Velestino, and Domokos have been drawn from the rough sketches which I made in my note-book to aid me in my descriptions of the engagements, in exactly the same way as I made shorthand notes of the different phases of the battles. They do not profess to be as exhaustive or as absolutely accurate as a military engineer's survey, but I hope they will enable the reader to follow the context with additional interest.
