520    "Thomas Kelah Wharton's travel diaries provide an intimate
       glimpse into the society of early nineteenth-century 
       America. As a young immigrant from England, the eldest son
       of a wealthy merchant who fell on hard times, Wharton 
       (1814-1862) navigates the complex world of New York and 
       the Hudson River Valley in the early 1830s and his diaries
       reveal a vibrant cultural and social scene. Encounters 
       with the Hudson River School painter Thomas Cole; author 
       Washington Irving; Sylvanus Thayer, superintendent of the 
       U.S. Military Academy at West Point; the Greek Revival 
       architect Martin Thompson, and many others enliven the 
       story. Wharton was a gifted pen-and-ink artist, and his 
       faithful drawings provide rare and wonderful views of an 
       America just beginning to industrialize. Wharton's 
       journals skip two decades, and pick up in 1853 when 
       Wharton--now an established professional living in New 
       Orleans--brought his young family from New Orleans to 
       Boston. The trip to Boston, richly illustrated with 
       Wharton's fine drawings, illuminates the joys and hazards 
       of travelling aboard steamboats and trains, and touches on
       the tensions growing between North and South. The journals
       show an inquisitive, observant mind at work, one with 
       strong artistic opinions and religious views and a bent to
       Romanticism"--|cProvided by publisher.
