The Victorian Clergyman Abroad
The identity of the Clergyman whose diary this is unknown. He clearly travelled extensively in Europe in the 1870s, using Thomas Cook Vouchers to do so.
His opinions are fascinating and offer an insight into the moral thinking of the time which is often (unintentionally) very humorous.
My mother saved his manuscript from pulping during a “paper drive” in the Second World War when she was teaching in Eastbourne. How it came to be there will never be known.
His manuscript has been a source of enormous pleasure to our family and I hope that it will afford readers amusement and, perhaps, information. Perhaps we will meet, tracing his steps!
