This is a wonderful look into life in Alexandria in 1805, talking about how people traveled, how long it took, how drastically different the weather was then, with standard snow of 4 feet in March! Mention of earthquakes, and people in town. Notes by Don Dahmann clarifying the meaning of things. Don painstakingly transcribed original documents to compile this book.
