1 SLADE, J.B., TRIAL JUDGE 1873 HANDWRITTEN MANUSCRIPT DIARY OF A FARMER AND JUDGE OVERSEEING THE EXECUTION OF A CONVICTED MURDERER
Somerset [Fall River], Massachusets 1873 Good Manuscript 
On offer is the original handwritten diary of J. B. Slade of Somerset (Fall River) MA. The diary is dated 1871 but Mr. Slade has used this as 1873 making changes as he goes along. At first we thought the gentleman was a farmer given the numerous tasks of a rural nature but that's the pioneer life and Mr. Slade was very active growing, hauling, planting and picking. However as you will read from the snippets to follow that Mr. Slade was also a Judge and or a Justice of the Peace and an attorney too: "..attended church in the morning at the Baptist afternoon at the Methodist", "Walter went to the Village .. errands...." give an insight into the daily life of a Victorian Farmer. "Complaint Commonwealth vs C. Perry.", "...very cold and at the nite 70 below...", "Tried the case of Commonwealth vs. Perry at the town clerk's office.", "Write deed for William Davis.", "At night Mr. Furned called on business relative to the Methodist Society.", "Mr. Bean & Sampson called on business being State constables.", "Tried the case of Commonwealth vs. Burns for unlawfully keeping intoxicating liquers for sale!", "This was the day set aside for the execution of _____ for the murder of Putnam in N[ew] London and also another in Boston. per crime of murder.", "Evening wrote contract for John B. Bowers and William Miller.", "Mrs. W.L. Slade injured by the unhanging of the laundry.", "A gentleman from Abbington called for multiple writs." The book is also filled with many, many names of friends, contacts, business associates and religious persons of the area that should provide historians and genealogists with a great deal of work. The back of the book has an accounting of yearly expenditures. Research shows the Slade family were very early settlers of Fall River and big land and farming owners. A Slade's Ferry Bridge, long gone, from the north end of the city was named for them. The diary has had May 23rd to June 10th torn out and the flap with the 'tongue' is torn away but present and otherwise in good+ condition.
