Abstract

Finding aid only for Manuscripts Small Collection 241. Original and typescript of diary and account book kept by Coolidge, chiefly of his trip from Baltimore to New Orleans and back, 4 November 1822 to 14 May 1823. Homesick for his family, he describes his sometimes tedious, sometimes terrifying travels by stagecoach, steamboat and schooner. He offers unflattering comments about his time in Kentucky.
