On offer is a fascinating pairing of original handwritten diaries once belonging to Adams, New York man, Edwin H. Chafin. One handwritten diary records the life, activities and commerce of a young Mr. Chafin in 1881 and then 33 years later we have his 1914 diary. Like bookends it is very intriguing to read and compare the activities and duties of a man in his 30s [he reveals his wife is 63 in 1914, thusly 30 in 1881] and then read of his more frequent church going and pension collecting three decades later. Local collectors and historians and genealogists will find a unique prospect of research in this personal history spanning the 19th and 20th centuries.
