1 CHARLES G. READE 1892 - 1902 ARCHIVE OF FOUR [4] ORIGINAL MANUSCRIPT DIARIES DETAILING THE LIFE AND LOVE OF A DAYTON OHIO NEWSPAPERMAN TURNED PREACHER MAN

2 REVEREND CHARLES G. READE 1908 - 1940 LARGE ARCHIVE OF ORIGINAL MANUSCRIPT DIARIES HANDWRITTEN BY A MOST DEDICATED EPISCOPALIAN REVEREND CONSUMED WITH HIS DUTIES TO THE POOR, SICK AND NEEDY OF CINCINNATI OHIO
CINCINNATI OHIO OH 1908 Good+ 
On offer is an interesting, very detailed archive of 18 original manuscript diaries handwritten by Cincinnati Ohio Reverend Charles G. Reade a man who is consumed by his visits with the poor, the grieving, the orphaned and needy. Educated, prolific and meticulous he rarely misses a day right up until the end of his life. [The 18 volumes are dated between 1908 and 1940, with 1915-1918 conspicuously absent and perhaps due to chaplain service in the military.] Very detailed, there are accounts of visits to the homes of those who've died from influenza and scarlet fever, every visit records names and addresses and every restaurant visited. There are also travels recorded including Toronto and Detroit. The Reverend also records weather for every day but most importantly we learn of this pious, dedicated man's every good deed, every sermon and collector's and historians of the Cincinnati area is a detailed picture of Depression era and pre-World War II Ohio. It is apparent, right from the early years, that this man is unbelievably tireless in his devotion to the church and community. After the first years, there is scarcely a day that passes in which he does not record going out into the community to lead sermons and teachings, attend or preside at funerals, marriages, births and baptisms. When he writes "in office," or "at desk," one almost gets the feeling that there's a lot of guilt in it. Here are some snippets: January 31, 1910: "Read Morning Prayer at 9. Taught 4th & 5th grades. Gave help to __ __. He has a job. Unpacked 100p. books & 100 hymnals belonging to city Mission Society. After lunch had funeral of Mrs Clara Hall at Central & 7th & Wesleyan Cemetery. She was probably murdered. Called on Kountz a patient from City Hospital at 3563 Colerain Ave. Paralyzed. Has wife &2 children." Excerpt from Tuesday, October 22, 1929: "President Hoover's visit to city. At desk in a.m. Wrote several letters.... had burial services for Augeust Miller aged 53, died Sunday oct 20. Had been in Longview Hospital a long time." Finally on December 23, 1940, Reverend Reade wrote his last entry: "Went to Dr Stewart Hagan's in taxi with Mrs Schreiber. Mr Henry G Mather took me -- taxi $15. Mr & Mrs Gentry & Robert called on us. They are going to Atlanta Ga. Gave $1 to colored clergyman. Talked to Lewis at Marietta, O." Then on December 24, 1940, Christmas Eve, there is a single entry, noting Eternal Rest, and signed by his son Lewis Reade. Each book is a standard dated yearbook, and were in different formats by years; the smallest format is about 3.5 by 6 inches, and the largest is about 4.25 by 7 inches. Overall G+. BIOGRAPHICAL NOTES: One learns from one annual: "Rev. Chas. G. Reade," he was born September 18, 1865, and he "took charge" of St. Stephen's Episcopal Church in Cincinnati in 1921. His family originated from the UK, he was married to a woman named Nora who returned to England in her last years, and had at least two younger brothers who were also reverends in England. He lived to the ripe old age of 75, and kept his journals faithfully right up to the day he passed away. [EDITOR'S NOTE: We have an earlier group of four diaries of Reade's time in Dayton listed seperately Seller Id# 0001304.]
