New Mode of Transportation
John Girardeau Legare of Darien, Georgia wrote in his journal of attempting a new mode of transportation, to his family’s amusement:
“…I am learning to ride a Bicycle. I am getting along finely, but I seem to furnish a good deal of amusement to my family who usually look on while I am practicing.”
