PALMER, John, English traveller. He sailed from Liverpool on 28 March, 1817, in the ship in which William Cobbett returned to the United States, and travelled through this country and Canada. On his return to England he published his "Journal of Travels in the United States of North America and in Lower Canada" (London, 1818). This contains particulars relating to the prices of land and provisions, remarks on the country and the people, an account of the commerce of the principal towns, and a description of a pair of sea-serpents that were said to have been seen off Marblehead and Cape Ann in 1817. Sidney Smith said that Palmer was "a plain man, of good sense and slow judgment."
