1 HAINES JR., R.B. 1867 - 1868 HANDWRITTEN MANUSCRIPT DIARY OF AN 11 YEAR OLD BOY IN POST CIVIL WAR PENNSYLVANIA
Germantown, Pennsylvania 1867 Very Good Manuscript 
With very nice penmanship most of the time, this notebook-style diary begins "1867 5th Month, 6th." and then proceeds to detail the daily activities of this charming young man, R.B. HAINES Jr., [we estimate to be about 10 or 11 years old given the amount of time he spends fishing and playing in the barn balanced with his responsibilities] through until October 1868. References to keeping and tending pigeons, gardening, building a chicken coop, greenhouse growing pepper mint, catnip, flowers, tomato and preparing for market and visiting friends and family are all noted. Travels include Burwood, Miltown, Westown, Wilkes Barrie. There are also references to his brother Cappy [Caspar] going to boarding school, Uncle Doctor and Aunt Lilly, Uncle Bacon, Aunt Hackers, Cousin Samuel Morrice, visiting the Wyoming Valley Monument where "a small 'car' with dwarfs came by and they were showing off why they were small to make money", "tryed to make part of a steam engine" and playing croquet, trying to fix the mowing machine. This diary includes a letter and envelope written to his brother Casper, signed with initials, that was found in the book.Truly superb look at the world of a young Civil War era youngster who appears to be having a great life in pioneer Pennsylvania. Approximately 75 pages nearly fully written with a small number of illustrations by the author.
