1 CHARLES F. PAIGE 1900 - 1924 ARCHIVE OF SEVEN [7] HANDWRITTEN MANUSCRIPT DIARIES OF AN EXTREMELY HARDWORKING MASSACHUSETTS MAN WHO STRADDLES THE WORLD OF RURAL AND URBAN LIFE: SUPER EXAMPLE OF THE NEW CENTURY'S LABOR AND EMPLOYMENT
Lunenberg, Jaffrey, Boston Massachusetts MA 1900 Very Good Manuscript 
On offer is a handwritten archive of manuscript diaries written by Charles F. Paige. In all there are seven [7] diaries covering the years 1900, 1902, 1904, 1906, 1913, 1920 and 1924. These make for a fascinating period collection of an incredibly hard working man who straddles the rural and urban worlds. He is a farmer, itinerant worker for other farmers and also works for extended periods on more modern works for the Boston Elevated Railroad Co. Charles is also entrepreneur earning as much as $2.25 per day, he pays those who labor for him 50 to 60 cents per day. Truly interesting even in the sporadic fashion of the diaries to see Charles' life evolve and progress. Places he called villages have become towns, towns have become cities. So hard a worker is Charles that when in 1904 his father dies, January 31, 1904, 87 years, 10 months, 25 days old and still Charles goes to work. He notes just 2 months later that Adeline S. Paige died May 15, 1904, 45 yrs of age and of course Charles still has work to do. Many, many dozens of names and places are mentioned: Dr. Hermiston, Fitzwilliams, Willie Lang, Willoughby, Adams, E. C. Shuttach, Geo. Caneguy, J. Paige, Geo. Lang, H.B. Hunt, L. Spaulding, L. Cutter, Mrs. Parker, Rod Livingstone, Daniel Adams, Kingsbury, Harry Mack, Andrew Bryant, C. Blake, Lizzie Papered, Flaranck, Dr. Emerson, Weymouth, Litchfield, Burrage, Billings, Harry Brown, Fred Smith, McIntire, N. Fisk, S. Sanderson, W. Aldrich, G.E. Freeman, Walter Heath, Kingsbury, Fred Morris and M. Streeter. Places: Jaffrey, Wakefield, Peterboro, Keene, Boston, Winchendon, Wilmington, Lydia, Allston, Lunenburg and Fitchburg. Overall VG.
