1 JOHN WARDEN JR. 1898 ORIGINAL MANUSCRIPT DIARY HANDWRITTEN BY A VERY MUSICAL WORCESTER MASSACHUSETTS MAN
WORCESTER, MASSACHUSETTS MASS MA 1898 Good Manuscript 
On offer is an original late 19th Century manuscript diary dated 1898 Worcester Massachusetts handwritten by John Warden Jr. John does a fine job using this small flip book style notebook, in a small precise hand, rarely missing a day. A casual reading reveals that he is a member of a Quartet playing for different churches and lodges. He notes that his wife Eva has been sick a lot and having the doctor, and at one time he says, "Eva came home today feeling much better gained 5 lbs. weight 85 lbs." Researchers and historians of the era will have a wealth of financial and economic information along with his personal doings as he notes how much he pays for things, the costs of car fair, about his "wheel" (his bicycle), that he paid .15 for toilet paper, and .50 for whiskey. On Tuesday, Feb.15, he notes that the "Battleship Maine destroyed by an explosion in Havana." On Thursday, April 21st, he writes, "war declared with Spain". He plays the organ in church, and tells of his last day playing at the Hope Church, saying he'd been doing it for 5 years, and 3 months. He attends lodge meeting quite often, and talks about planting vegetables and flowers, etc. he says on sat. August 27th, "some of the boys came home from the war and were saluted by 21 cannon shots & the mill shut down." The leather diary is in good condition save for the back cover missing. The diary measures about 2 1/2" x 4".
