William Savery's diaries. The majority of the first volume concerns the Treaty at Canandaigua, and the remaining volumes are accounts of religious visits Savery made throughout Europe. Entries generally describe details of travel between destinations, Quaker meetings attended, Quaker families visited, and descriptions of each location's culture, food, language, style of dress, and form of local government.
Diary entries are largely related to William Thompson's family's grocery business, family news, illness, social calls, and Quaker meetings he attended. He occasionally also describes Quakers from England and Ireland making religious visits to America.
Entries in Rebecca Wright's diary of her religious visit to England and Ireland provide an account of her voyage to Ireland, her recuperation in Waterford after arriving, her attendance at meetings in Ireland, her travel to Liverpool, and attendance at meetings throughout England.
