Letters from Lady Amelia Matilda Murray - mentioning of James McClelland

Lady Amelia Matilda Murray was a British botanist and botanical artist who became a maid of honour to Queen Victoria in 1837. Murray traveled through the Adirondacks in 1854 or 1855, escorted by New York State governor Horatio Seymour, guided by Mart Moody and James McClelland and accompanied by another lady and gentleman, unnamed. They stayed at Baker's Hotel which she described as the "last house of reception on the Saranac River." She was hailed as the first woman to "cross the woods," presumably along with the lady who was her companion.
