Sprague (1795-1876), an American clergyman educated at Yale and Princeton, published numerous books, of which the best known is Annals of the American Pulpit (nine volumes, 1857-1869), a biographical dictionary of American ministers of various denominations. In 1828 Sprague embarked on a trip to Europe for health reasons and he was asked by a friend at the Observer to record his journey for publication. The letters were eventually published in this volume. The better part of the letters concern religious matters.
