On offer is an original handwritten manuscript diary authored by a hardworking Woodstock Vermont area man. Densely written and jam packed from May 1st 1873 through November 21st 1877 the writer details his work, travels, daily life, friends and local events including births and deaths and his visits with associates. Besides working incredibly hard on his own spread farming, ranching, lumbering and other commerce buying and selling and he labors for others as well and mentions the names of all visitors and visits. A casual reading of this filled several hundred page blank book style diary will find a treasure trove of genealogy and history of the local area and we believe a closer reading by a local historian or collector will almost certainly provide the author's name. Names mentioned include: Orlando Richmond, Henry Hutch, Addams, Hathaway, John Orcott, Edwin Ainsworth, George Richmond, Mr. Russell, Thornton, Weed, Mr. Ward, Mrs. Flint, Willie Clemmons, Wm. Strong, Joseph Richmond, Frank Metcalf, Haskell, Haddock, Daniel Spaulding, Smith Mabell, Mrs. Chiles. Mr. Biglow. There are also a number of trips to Quebec, butchering cows, taking hides to Standish and much, much more. The quarter leather book is rubbed and faded but otherwise tightly bound and the interiors are very good. The spine features gilt stamping of the word 'Record'. Small 8vo 5.5 x 7.5" VG.
