1 LUTHER DOUGLAS and CHARLES EVERETT DOUGLAS 1855 - 1862 ORIGINAL SCRAPBOOK AND DIARY OF WORK, PURCHASES, FINANCE AND PERSONAL INTERESTS OF A SAGAMORE - PLYMOUTH MASSACHUSETTS FATHER AND SON
SAGAMORE PLYMOUTH MASSACHUSETTS MASS MA 1855 Good 
On offer is an interesting, original pre Civil War and Civil War era manuscript diary, journal and catchall scrapbook handwritten and compiled by we believe Luther Douglas [b.1828] and then, later, his son Charles Everett Douglas [b.1852] between 1855 and November 1862. Casual research finds Luther born in Plymouth and Charles in Sagamore Massachusetts. This is backed up with many entries suggesting easy visits and trips to Plymouth. The book is marked "Hired Mens Book" but that is crossed out and then is full of Douglas' writings and clippings save for a couple of pages used by a child [Charles?] it appears. This unusual book has approximately 122 pages with entries a short scrap area: 10 pages have poetry cut from newspapers and/or magazines (covering up the journal entries dated from January 1855 or so). This is followed by three pages of entries and then scraps on 19 Presidents (not in chronological order) are pasted down covering other entries. These were placed later as evidenced by the Abraham Lincoln clipping mentioning the President's martyrdom. The balance is a personal journal and diary centering around work related entries [mostly for Sarah or Jacob Perry, then Handel Tripp and many, many more], visits, purchases, trips and much more. There are a small number of ephemeral inserts one of particular genealogical interest as it is a slip of paper with the note: 'one man's family'. The book itself is a board covered book measuring approximately 6 1/4" x 7 3/4". The paper is somewhat brittle in spots but overall the book is G.
