Philip Vickers Fithian (1747-1776) was an Amrican tutor and erstwhile Presbyterian minister (he died before completing his ecclesiatical training). He was born in Greenwich in southern Province of West [New] Jersey and later lived in Cohansy. In 1772 he graduated from the College of New Jersey (now Princeton University). At the urging of John Witherspoon, he delayed his ordination as a minister, instead accepting a position of tutor for the John Carter familiy of Virginia. The journals transscribed here (with notes by Palmer) are considered one of the most important first-hand accounts of southern New Jersey and later the area of Virginia to which he moved for his tutoring job.
