[it has been judged best to let Margaret herself tell the story of her travels.
In the spring of 1846, her valued friends, Marcus Spring and lady, of New York, had decided to make a tour in Europe

to accompany them.

Some extracts, describing distinguished persons whom she saw, have been borrowed from her letters to the New York Tribune.]
