Our knowledge both of Czech and consequently its orthography are non-existent, the identity of the writer could probably be determined by someone without these constraints. The writer has evidently just returned to Europe from America via New York, Havre and thence to Paris. He mentions and presumably describes some of the places he visited in America including Chicago, Michigan, including Huron, Detroit, and St. Clair, Erie, Buffalo, Niagra Falls, et cetera. An interesting and unusual letter recording a Czech traveler's experiences in America.
