Description

Page 154 found in Chapter twelve in Volume one of Marryat's A Diary in America. Plagued by swarms of mosquitoes, the traveler arrives at Syracuse. He comments about the names of American cities: I do detest these old names vamped up. Why do not the Americans take the Indian names? They need not be so very scrupulous about it; they have robbed the Indians of everything else.
