Charles Leland was an American humorist and folklorist. Leland worked in journalism, and traveled extensively. He studied folklore and folk linguistics, publishing books and articles on American and European languages and folk traditions. In 1869 he traveled to Europe where he began studying the gypsies. The English Gipsies and Their Language was published in 1873. Leland spent many hours with the gypsies and has only praise for them and their kindness.
