Porte Crayon was the pseudonym of David Hunter Strother (1816-1888) a consul general in Mexico City and publishers urged him to write about Mexico and his Mexico experiences.  He had a good reputation and they knew he was a capable writer from his previous publications. What resulted was a very vivid set of voluminous diary entries that describe this critical era in Mexican history under the autocratic rule of Porfirio Diaz. A great source for researchers of the period.
