1 WILLIAM WAKELEY 1853-1874 HANDWRITTEN MANUSCRIPT DIARY/JOURNAL/NOTEBOOK OF A SUCCESSFUL HOMER NEW YORK BUSINESSMAN
HOMER NEW YORK, NY 1853 Good Manuscript 
On offer is a handwritten diary/journal - "The American Diary for 1853 and Reference Book for Business and Professional Business Men, Housekeepers, Travelers, and All Others" New York: Published by A. Morrell, 1853". As evidenced on the fep the author states: "August 28, 1854 - William Wakeley's book Homer Cortland Co., NY." The book was used by William primarily for financial purposes but is littered with notes of local historical events, personal observations as late as 1874 and many, many companies and addresses: "Homer, December 28th 1871, William B. Coggshall, Dr. to One Elias Howe, Sewing Machine for Sixty Dollars..."."Cost of fifteen Thurs N.Y. Central RR Nov. 5 1853 Sixteen hundred, Eighty 86 Dollars...$111 per share". "Homer April 26 1888, George W. Brown Dr. to set five pairs of brass to fix doors and let down floor $1.50." August 2 1858 William Kingsbury....belt leather..."Dane Stebbins.....One hand drill..." On each day, there's historical information on an event, such as "November 1853, Friday, 25...New York evacuated, 1783", March 2, 1863 - Stone & Brothers by Wrought Iron to the amount of 49 1/2 lbs for cartage, Homer Sept 1862 - Stone & Brothers Dn - Make Cider with Senew & Nut for $5.00, 1864 - Loome Dye Brothers of Ayerchary? Loomis of Homer to one Blacksmiths Drill for ten dollars, Laid Loome's lives in Chitangua County N.Y." etc., etc. Mr. Wakeley must have been quite wealthy listing all his Railroad Bond purchases and he sold many 'drilling' machines throughout New York State. The cover is somewhat rough but the interiors are better than good.
