Abstract:

The first 13 pages of Clymer's manuscript contain notes from his journals, with random observations, about his time in Southern California, including Santa Barbara, Los Angeles and Monterey. Clymer talks about the people he sees, their clothes, customs, dwellings, etc. He also describes California's weather, landscape, agriculture and crops. The remaining 83 pages are written in a narrative style and concern Clymer's time in South America, including Peru, Bolivia and Chile. Clymer also briefly discusses the political history of the area, touching on the Peru-Bolivian Confederation in the late 1830s, and mentioning the lengthy string of wars fought in Peru and elsewhere since independence from Spain; as well as, the effects of civil war in Bolivia. He also talks about his voyage in the Pacific, the sea creatures he sees, the calmness of the Pacific Ocean, etc. The manuscript has numerous corrections and additions, indicating that Clymer perhaps intended it for publication, or at least for a more personal public audience.
