Historical Note:

In 1834, Mrs. Adams of Providence, Rhode Island, and her three children departed on a journey that took them through New York, Pennsylvania, and Ohio. An unidentified man was hired to accompany Mrs. Adams and her family on their trip. The escort, who traveled with his own wife and children as well, was given $130 to cover the Adams' travel expenses. The two families traveled via stage coach, packet boat, and canal barge, visiting New York City, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, and Cincinnati. The group turned east and stopped at Cleveland, Buffalo, Utica, and New York City before going home to Providence.
