Summary
Jones records his observations of trips to western United States (Utah and Colorado in 1899), and California to Virginia, (1913?); Mexico; Cuba; Europe (Dublin, London, Brussels, and several German cities); an around the world voyage that included India (Bombay, Agra, Delhi, Lucknow, Benares, Calcutta, and Darjeeling, plus a discourse on the religions of the East), Burma, Japan (Tokyo, Yokohama) and the Hawaiian Islands; Panama Canal and Jamaica with Bolling Blair of Richmond; and South America in 1920 (Peru, Chili, Argentina, Uruguay, and Brazil). He had a special interest in mining, manufacturing and business which is reflected in his entries.
