1 LEONARD NEWCOMB 1885 HANDWRITTEN DIARY OF LIFE IN PROVIDENCE RHODE ISLAND BY A MEMBER OF THE WILLING HELPERS SOCIETY YMCA
Providence Rhode Island RI 1885 Soft Cover Good+ Manuscript 
This is a "Standard" pocket diary completely filled out for the full year of 1885. The original owner was a "Leonard Newcomb" and although we believe he is in Providence Rhode Island, or very near there. In the diary he mentions East Providence, Brown University, Royce Williams Park, Rocky Point and Pine Grove. Also all the addresses in the back of the diary have Providence Rhode Island as their home. Leonard is faithful at keeping his diary, writing everyday. He loves skating on the river, attends school and on numerous occasions attends the local museum and Opera House. He's also part of a group called "Willing Helpers Society" and the YMCA. He mentions many names such as; Douglas, Charlie Baker, Daves, Hutchinson, William Hodges, Dr. Green, Wheedin, Studley, C. Kneeland, Walter Brown, Edward Buffington, William Chase, Harry Miller, Waldo Parrath, Christopher Pease, Fred Sweet, Joseph Frankland, and more. His entries are mostly about his daily activities, as you will see a few examples in the following paragraph; "I went to work as usual, got out at 12 O'clock, went to the Comique (Theatre?) in the afternoon and went to the Antique Miners dance in the evening…Went up to the "Feast of the Moon" that was held at the old reform school. Went down to the corner of Brook and Wickenden Streets in the morning, then went to Dana's barn in the afternoon and in the evening went to the Lantern Festival. I commenced to go with Lillie Baker the 15th of May 1883, stopped February 23rd, 1844.I went to work and got out at 6 O'clock and went to the Providence Opera House in the evening with S. G. Got May pay raised to 80 cents per day. Moved to 99 Williams Street, June 12, 1885." And much more. Super peek at the life and times of the late 19th century.
