Summary expansion
"So I came to the conclusion that one could see and learn most by traveling independently, thus being hampered by no contracts or limits as to time and place. Could I do this all by myself, in a foreign land amid a foreign tongue, I who had lived all my life in the seclusion and protection of the home circle?.....I would go" (page 2). At a time when women commonly traveled with a chaperone, Harmon's solitary adventure is evidence of women's evolving role in society during the late Victorian era. Along the way, the independent Harmon provides encouragement to other "solitary sisters."
