"The Tramp at Home" - Josiah Flynt - The Century

Being in New York and having ten days at my disposal before leaving for Europe, I decided to retrace some of my old routes, and to renew my acquaintance with old roadsters. What I saw and how I fared along the way are embodied in the following pages. I have confined myself to the rehearsal of bare facts without further comment, believing that the reader will moralize and philosophize whenever necessary.

In this account, Flynt describes in detail the week he spent tramping around upstate New York. While many of Flynt's writings mix sociology and pure description, this account consists entirely of the latter.
