Other TitleMemoranda when I was at Peru
CreatorWinter, George, 1810-1876
DescriptionLetter (copy) From: George Winter, Peru, September 4, 1839 ("memoranda when I was at Peru, 1st") To: D. AL (unsigned), 3 p. (one sheet, folded; handwritten) Comments on the human condition and a spirit of initiative. Man is naturally active and suffers from indolence. Somewhat snide comments on Peru, but praise for the landscape and some buildings, including the courthouse. Musings on canal travel (canal passes through Peru) as slow, conducive to thought, but also confining. He misses the company of the ladies he was with before embarking. The canal boat's horn was excessively audible at his host's house.
Description ContinuedOn verso: fragmentary pencil notes of visit to Frances Slocum and events leading up to it, probably written on the spot, including some items not mentioned in his Journal.
SubjectsWinter, George, 1810-1876--Correspondence
