Scope & Content "The acoccidologist or an account of an expedition to the more remote parts of Chester County:" 1899 (July 8-15). Accounts travels by four gentlemen who went incognito, using "titles" instead of their names.
Very descriptive of the terrain and plants, fields, etc.
Apparently all four gentlemen were very verbal and had constant discussions.
The diary records each day's travels, the hostelries arrived at each evening, and much of the wordy discussions continuously carried on.
The trip began near Downingtown, went up to Knauertown, to Honey Brook, to Parkesburg, to Oxford via Cochranville and Russellville, to Landenberg, Avondale, and through Renamon (visiting Kennett), Chadds Ford, on to Wilmington, DE.
From Chadds Ford to Coatesville - next to Green Hill and then home.
