Clark: "Robert Sutcliff, an English merchant of Sheffield and a member of the Society of Friends made his second trip to America in July, 1804, and left in August 1806. His business in America permitted him to travel rather extensively and observingly from New York to Virginia. He is sympathetic with all features of American life except slavery."
