The letters, dating from October 1829 through August 1835, are directed to family members -- mainly his mother Judith Solomon Cohen, and his brothers David, Jacob and Benjamin. The letters present an in-depth account of the countries and cities visited by Cohen. As an astute observer, Cohen described his daily travels, his encounters with people, his opinions on architecture, the roads the seas, and his thoughts on the political, social and economic climate of the areas in which he lived. His travels took him to cities such as Liverpool, London, Edinburgh, Paris, Geneva, Hamburg, Berlin, Rome, Florence, Athens, Constantinople, Smyina, Beirut, Cairo, Jerusalem, Alexandria, and Brussels.
