Description - Travels through the Middle Settlements in North-America in the Years 1759 and 1760 by Andrew Burnaby
An unflagging traveler and diarist, the Reverend Andrew Burnaby embarked on a two-year tour of the American colonies in 1759. Originally published in England in 1775, his account of his travels includes commentaries about people, politics, taxes, trade, and the state of the arts and sciences; detailed descriptions of the natural surroundings; amusing anecdotes; and predictions about the future of the colonies. It remains a vivid and valuable primary source on life in the American colonies before the Revolution. Also included in this volume is Burnaby's "Diary of the Weather," kept between January 1760 and December 1762. Andrew Burnaby's Itinerary: Virginia (Williamburg, King William, Fredericksburg, Colchester, Mount Vernon, Winchester) Maryland (Annapolis, Fredericktown) Delaware (New Castle) Pennsylvania (Philadelphia) New Jersey (Trenton, Princeton, Perth-Amboy) New York (New York City, Long Island) Rhode Island (Newport, Providence) Massachusetts (Boston) New Hampshire (Portsmouth)
