On offer is an original 1888 manuscript diary handwritten by an unidentified upstate New York man. There are many mentions of Castorland, Lowville, Dublin, Black River and Carthage placing the writer somewhere east of Watertown New York. Unusual for a rural diary is the very cultured hand of this man who works as auctioneer, interpreter and lawyer or maybe even a Justice of the Peace mentioning at least two trials plus he does the thousand chores rural people of the day did from making cheese and soap to digging potatoes. Local historians or collectors of the area will perhaps find more given the authors descriptions of events and names mentioned which include: John Zehr, J.W. Henry, Yousey, George Busm, La Juett Family, Nicholas Paquet, Frank Henry, Peter Ritts, Old Mrs. Effly, George Stoddard, Anna his wife. He also mentions being an interpreter for Antoine and Mrs. Maugery; Rama and Katie came home from the woods; and he writes of going to his factory to turn out something in wood; sawing ice for ice house and also sleighing. He mentions many births, deaths and marriages. Overall VG.
