If you have ever wondered what it was like to travel during the 18th century, then check out this first hand account by Tobias Smollet. He tell us of his adventures on the road through letters he sent home while on his travels through France and Italy.

DEAR SIR,--You laid your commands upon me at parting, to communicate from time to time the observations I should make in the course of my travels and it was an injunction I received with pleasure. In gratifying your curiosity, I shall find some amusement to beguile the tedious hours, which, without some such employment, would be rendered insupportable by distemper and disquiet.
