Here he recorded the earliest objective, long-term, eyewitness account of Mexico and Mexican life by an American citizen following the recognition of Mexican independence by the United States. Harvard-educated and twenty-two years old on his arrival in Mexico, Tayloe, in the thirty-three months that followed, came to know this country during a critically formative period in its history. His journal and correspondence illustrate an interest in the old and the new, in places and in people, in modes of travel and types of housing, in both rural and urban life."...dj.
