Abstract

**Warning: Some of the language or characterizations in this book are the product of the time when this book was written, and are no longer considered acceptable.**

Two Vassar girls postpone their studies to travel around the United States. They join a friend from college, her mother, and her aunt and uncle while her mother recovers from pneumonia by visiting the Southern and Western states.

The Minorcan population of St. Augustine is discussed at length, and the Southwestern Indians imprisoned at the Castillo at the time of writing are mentioned several times.

Local locations visited or mentioned in the text include the Castillo de San Marcos, the Old City Gates, the Maria Sanchez River (partially filled in by Henry Flagler to build the Hotel Ponce de Leon), Plaza de la Constitucion, the Cathedral Basilica, St. George Street, the seawall, the Hotel Ponce de Leon, and the Casa Monica Hotel.
