University Press of Florida

The first chapter situates the two protagonists of the correspondence, Jean Boze and Henri de Sainte-Gême, including their adventure within the rich and complex Atlantic world of the nineteenth century. It qualifies their transatlantic relationship, not uncommon at the time, and follows the detail of their adventures and experiences in this Atlantic world, in an attempt to understand Boze's perspective on early American New Orleans and to determine the interest of this peculiar perspective to understand the social, economic, political, and cultural environment in which he lived. It studies Boze's perspective, that of a relative outsider in the city who had chosen his asylum and was intricately connected with several important groups of the New Orleans population.

Keywords:   Atlantic World, New Orleans, Jean Boze, Henri de Sainte-Gême
