The author, styling himself a Virginian, writes of his European travels during 1776-77. He seems to have paid particular attention to French and British ladies, even noting such delicate things as French ladies' legs and feet. He likes Paris palaces better than those in London, and seems to be a Francophile through and through, citing the French predilection for learned men. Scarce. SABIN 1258.
