Abstract:

Wood makes observations on customs, institutions, intellectual life, weather and travel conditions, agriculture, and cotton textile manufacturing, and comments on the differences between northern and southern society including the general prosperity in the north and the high cost of free labor.

Topics of interest include descriptions of New York City; a Fourth of July celebration; a fatal duel; a medical procedure; the casting of gudgeons; sermons he hears; national politics; sword, pistol, and woolen factories; views on female education particularly geography which enables women to "understand the conversation of men" and astronomy which will "lead the mind to its maker" and noting that "female pedantery is at all times abominable"; a murder trial; the purchase of cotton manufacturing machines; and medicinal uses of the slippery elm.

People he meet include members of the Biddle family, a General Doughty, and Benjamin Silliman of Yale with whom he debates on "the difference of the mental qualities of the negro and the white man."
