Description

These are travels of a general nature and include two letters on Scotland, among other places. Thomson, the translator of Suetonius, claimed to be the editor of this work, but he was really its author, in the sense that the letters are his own work. A physician, Thomson also wrote several medical works. Cyprus is described in letter XXXI (pp. 363-364).
