Levasseur took great steps to ensure accuracy, often inquiring about certain circumstances and receiving detailed answers from common citizens. His curiosity helped to produce a well-rounded description filled with facts related to history, economy, industry and social customs. Learning from the people's reaction, the reader can get a better sense of Lafayette as a person and the role he played in America's struggle for independence.
I found Alan Hoffman's translation to be easily read and was struck by the consistency in the narrative and impressed by the elegant prose presented throughout.
