Views A-Foot


or; Europe seen with a Knapsack and Staff.


With a cousin and friend, he set sail on the packet ship Oxford for Liverpool in 1844 for a tour of Europe. He travelled through England, Germany, and Italy, purportedly living on six cents a day. This is a compilation of all the articles he wrote during the two years, which had been widely read and highly entertaining to his readers. It would prove to be a long-standing success with a number of reprints over the next thirteen years.

TO Frank Taylor, These records of the Pilgrimage, Whose toils and enjoyments we have Shared together, Are Affectionately Inscribed, BY His Relative and Friend.

"Jog on, jog on, the foot-path way,
And merrily hent the stile-a;
A merry heart goes all the day,
Your sad tires in a mile-a."
--from Winter's Tale.
