1 DICKINSON, ERNEST R. 1915 ORIGINAL MANUSCRIPT DIARY HANDWRITTEN BY A YOUNG MASSACHUSETTS LUMBER MAN, FARMER AND TEAMSTER LIVING ON THE MOHAWK TRAIL
MOHAWK TRAIL CHARLEMONT MASSACHUSETTS MASS MA 1915 Very Good 
On offer is the original 1915 manuscript diary of Ernest Dickinson, farmer, lumberman and teamster living on the Mohawk Trail Charlemont, Massachusetts. From his handwritten diary we get a one-year glimpse of this young man's life. He's a serious, dedicated young fellow living in the pristine woodland of the Mohawk Trail in western Massachusetts. He carefully records his daily activities: hauling sawdust or grain or manure, putting in fence posts, building a sawmill, pressing cider, gathering maple sap, hoeing, cultivating, hauling potatoes. We read of his encounters with Alice Whipple, notes the death and burial of his 88-year-old grandmother, and when he drives 19 miles to North Adams to have 12 teeth pulled. The next month he gets fitted for a new set of false teeth. Ernest works on town and state roads, and helps repair the boiler machinery in a sawmill. For fun, Ernest takes Alice to dances, to the fair, goes sledding, attends Grange and Odd Fellows, goes to "the pictures", and goes hunting. He never takes time off for church on Sunday, and Thanksgiving and Christmas are just more workdays. 200 pp. Diary includes normal calendar, population of cities, weights and measures, antidotes for poisons, terms of presidents including Wilson, etc. Standard leatherette diary with closure flap. Slight edge wear, marbled page ends, and overall VG.
