Quaker John Farmer left an intriguing account of his life which included a visit to the New World. In this he recorded his observations on foreign climes as well as his opinions on slavery and how native Americans were treated by the incomers. His forthright views and colourful descriptions, which caused him much trouble during his lifetime, will be discussed in this talk.
