Descriptive Catalogue of Sanskrit, Pali,& Sinhalese, Vol. 1 of 3

James D'alwis


Excerpt from Descriptive Catalogue of Sanskrit, Pali,& Sinhalese, Vol. 1 of 3: Literary Works of Ceylon

Confident that nothing will more enduringly bind the memory of Your Excellency to the present and future generations of the native Sinhalese, than "The Sanskrit, Pali, and Sinhalese Library" which you have established, it is to me a source of sincere pleasure that I have been enabled to complete, at least, one volume of the Descriptive Catalogue during your Government; and I indulge the hope that, as an Index of the Library, it will set before the world a correct, though feeble, "description" of the now fading, but still rich, literature of the Country, over the Government of which you have presided for the last five years, with great credit to yourself, and lasting benefit to all classes of the people.
