Scope and Contents

Travel diary, possibly revised as a book manuscript, by Reverend Martin S. Howard of Wilbraham, Massachusetts. The exact dates are not noted, but the late 1870s to early or mid-1880s seems a likely time frame. The diary is titled "A Bee line through Gt. Britain" and subsequent parts have the following headings: Edinburgh, Dublin, Killarney, Lakes of Killarney, Across the Irish Sea, London, Thirty days in France and Italy, Paris, Dijon, Florence, Rome, Venice, Milan, Tramps and Drives and Switzerland.

Descriptions of cities, countrysides, and sights visited are very detailed.

Also included is a 23 page manuscript sermon, titled "Tribulations - Preparatory Lecture preached by Rev. Martin S. Howard, Wilbraham, Mass, Sept. 1st, 1882."
