On offer is the personal handwritten diary of Frank J. Tone of Bergen New York. Frank uses an 1866 diary for the year of 1883 commencing on Jan. 1st. Frank is a student, we estimate he is 15 or 16 years old, who studiously makes daily notes on the weather, personal matters and events of historical significance both local, national and international. A super eye for detail he notes "Wed 3rd Teachers in school: Arthur G. Clement, Miss Lizzie Adams, Jennie Hancey, Miss S.F. Prentice." The diary is littered with notes such as: Gambetta the great French statesman died Jan 1st. Tues 13 King Kalakaua of Sandwich Island Crowned to day. Frank also keeps a number of lists: deaths, births and marriages in town, noted Senators. Researchers of New York State genealogy will be kept busy for quite some time as there is quite a fair amount local information. All done in lovely cursive writing. Has a few old post-marked notes, Jersey City, NJ, Palomonte both 1883 and a few die cuts pasted in. In good+ shape 2 x 3 inches.
