A study of the travel journals of Philadelphia Quaker Jabez Maud Fisher, this book brings to light an important but largely unknown text from the Revolutionary era. Fisher traveled to upstate New York, through parts of Canada, then New England, in the late Spring through early Fall of 1773. He provides rare observations of pre-Revolutionary times, and his commentary is illuminating and colorful.
