When I set out to blog Eliza Baylies Wheaton’s travel journal, I planned to blog each entry in a kind of “this day in 1862” fashion. You would think that after twenty years of teaching I would have realized that was an unreasonable goal for the final month of the spring semester. But fools rush in.
So now that the semester has been over for a month and June is half over, I am finally ready to get back to blogging the travel journal and the parts of Wheaton’s 1862 journey that she did not record there. Tomorrow, Liverpool. Then London. And in a week or two, Paris.
I wish I were going to Paris….
