Comments: Presentation copy from the author, William E. Waters. The inscription is on the front flyleaf which was dampstained, but the inscription is not smudged and is legible. William E. Waters was an assistant Army surgeon who kept a diary while traveling from St. Louis to Camp Douglas, near Salt Lake City, and while being stationed at Camp Douglas in 1867. This book is based on that diary and a series of letters he wrote while in the Utah territory. Pages 106 to 202 are his impressions of the Mormons, their Church doctrines, and polygamy. The first half of the text is a narrative "...of an Overland Expedition which crossed the plains from Leavenworth via the Black Hills and Bridger's Pass to the Salt Lake Valley." Eberstadt 106:323.

Dear Mr. Hample, Just a short note to confirm receipt of the book and my absolute satisfaction with it. I am in the process of building a library of books from the interwar period to document and understand the events as seen by contemporaries as very often knowledge of what happened afterwards colours the views of historians. I am mainly focussed on Italian matters but books describing current events in other countries such as Germany, UK, France, Spain, Japan and the US are of interest to me. If you have a catalogue or can indicate to me any other books that you think could interest me, I would be very gratefll.Thank you in advance and best regards. - Massimo C.
