This missionary presents a down-to-earth account of life in Siam in the 1860s: it is valuable source material as there are very few descriptions of Siam by foreigners during that period. Most especially is this true for the coronation of King Chulalongkorn as only a handful of non-Siamese were permitted to witness this auspicious occasion. The reader learns about Thailand’s past, forgotten events, customs and habits, some of which have disappeared. On the other hand, details raised here indicate that Thai society and culture have not changed as much during the past century as European and American societies have. The book is illustrated with prints from the 1850s and 1860s.
