Life with Boswell

Boswell was given a guided tour by Graham when he arrived in Nymwegen (Nijmegen) on June 18, 1764, on the first stop of his European tour following his departure from Utrecht. Among other things they went and saw the Valkhof castle and the Belvedere Tower. It is not clear whether they had met before.
