The Journal of Margaret Smith

BOSTON, May 8, 1678: “Of my voyage out I need not write, as I have spoken of it in my letters already, and it greatly irks me to think of it. Oh, a very long, dismal time of sickness and great discomforts, and many sad thoughts of all I had left behind, and fears of all I was going to meet in the New England! I can liken it only to an ugly dream. When we got at last to Boston, the sight of the land and trees, albeit they were exceeding bleak and bare (it being a late season, and nipping cold), was like unto a vision of a better world.” So, begins the tale of young Margaret Smith’s travels in America. A delightful telling spun by master storyteller John Greenleaf Whittier.
