John Patteson was a leading worsted manugacturer in Norwich who undertook a twenty month tour of Germany and Italy, half for business, half for pleasure. The eighty-one letters were written chiefly by Patterson and his anxious mother in Norwich. They are an important addition to the literature of the Grand Tour, especially since Patterson undertook a six week tour of Sicily and Malta with (Sir) John Soane and others.
