First edition. "Visiting Mexico ostensibly to alleviate 'a tendency of blood to the head,' this Philadelphia businessman spent his seven-week tour in the companionship of Methodist officials inspecting missions. Price concludes that Mexico was 'a garden of Eden, cursed by Popery and pulque' and that its salvation lay in 'gospel and soap.'" - Cole. AMERICAN TRAVELERS TO MEXICO. #335.
