During his stay he studied and recorded information about the topography, flora & fauna and social history found in the young country. He also made a series of sketches of the areas through which he traveled which culminated in the publication "Itineraire Pittoresque du Fleuve Hudson et des parties laterales de L'Amerique du Nord...".
