Joseph was the Township Supervisor and he does a super job in this tiny diary detailing his daily activities, many dozens of visitors by name, going to socials, attending a surprise party, being nominated and elected for Township Supervisor, Supervisors meetings in Pontiac, going out taking assessments, making out road warrants, going to Detroit and seeing one of his girls "C.M.W.", going to the Sand Hill Fair and then sadly he writes his Father having strokes of paralysis, his death and funeral an much, much more over the 365 entries. Historians and collectors of the area will find, besides the super historical entries 11 pages with ledger entries. He also kept track of letters he wrote to a woman that he was seeing. Here are some snippets: "Drove team over to Beddow to get the shod, then went to Chase Smith in evening we all went to Margaret McClellands ....
