1 M.B. THURLOW 1868-1869 HANDWRITTEN CIVIL WAR ERA ARCHIVE OF HANDWRITTEN DIARIES, LEDGERS AND AN 1880s AUTOGRAPH BOOK
Brooklyn New York, Minneapolis MN 1868 Very Good Manuscript 
On offer is a Civil War era archive of five [5] books of which two are the handwritten manuscript diaries from 1868 and 1869 of M. B. Thurlow. Ms. Thurlow lived in Brooklyn, New York and helped run a store on South Street, New York. There are daily entries from July 24th 1868 to December 31st 1869. Very intensly written, sometimes even cross-written, each day begins with a weather report plus store activities. Otherwise Ms Thurlow makes personal comments, tells the events of the day and identifies relatives and social activities. It appears that the store has dealing with quite a number of ships and there is an address for a Captain Masston of San Francisco prominently recorded. There are a number of trips recorded to Ithaca New York where we believe she had more family. Also, there are many, many dozens if not hundreds of names which will provide a treasure trove for genealogists and historians. Along with the two diaries are two ledger books that based on a casual reading appear to be business related to the store and in a different hand, likely a man's handwriting. A closer reading of the diaries and the ledgers will no doubt reveal the connection between Ms. Thurlow and the man writing in the ledgers. In one of the ledgers is a section approximately 4 weeks worth of entries detailing a voyage and is of a technical nature giving longitude and latitude, weather etc., etc. Lastly there is an autograph book relating to the mid 1880s with autographs and quotes signed from many individuals in New York and Minneapolis. We received these items together and are certain they relate and as such we will only sell the grouping intact.
