Burnaby arrived in Williamsburg in May of 1759 while on an excursion to the back country, and spent almost a year there. During his return trip he visited Mount Vernon, and includes a warm notice of Washington. In the spring of 1760 he made another trip to the Blue Ridge, then north through Maryland to Philadelphia, where he stopped for a month, and to New York for the same period. He then sailed to Newport and went overland to Boston. "Valuable as exhibiting a view of the colonies immediately preceding the Revolutionary War" -Sabin. Bookseller Inventory # 54254
