1920. With a niece's memories by Mabel La Farge. A selection of letters and notes by Adams, world traveler, cosmopolitan, and member of the most prominent family of the country, which included a grandfather and a great-grandfather who had been presidents, and a father who was Congressman and Minister to Britain. Henry Adams summarized his notions of travel in a letter to one of his nieces: My idea of paradise is a perfect automobile going thirty miles an hour on a smooth road to a twelfth-century cathedral.
