On offer is a well filled original 1890 manuscript diary handwritten by a hard working, earnest man who did not put his name or address in the diary, but is undoubtedly from Kansas, as there are references to Kansas City, Topeka, Easton, Wyandotte, and Solomon City and more. There are also many clues that a local researcher or historian could very well discover the writer's identity. The author runs a large farming operation whose main activity revolves around hogs but also cattle [spending a day hunting for his Jersey bull], wheat, corn, lumbering, planting apple trees and lots of horse trading. In some ways a standard rural diary of the weather, planted crops and the commerce of said operation but our author occasionally confides on paper about feeling the cold, having hard times and other observations: 'Went to the city to had another hearing of the Crain case.' 'Saw several ruff men on the way + signs that Bob Hurley was selling strong drink.' He travels to "the city" and other places and always mentions names of relatives and friends. They include: Colfax Sanderson, Dr. Chase, JAE Daniels, Walter Johnson, Brother Thomas, Dr. Goddard, John Orr, Mrs. Prentice, Mrs. May Becroft and more. Small, tri-fold format, w/ flexible covers in brown cloth. Some rubbed soil. Fading to cloth along edges. Small chip in gilt diary name on front. Rear hinge cracked; with tear along spine edge of last several pages. Else pages clean. ; 6 x 3-1/2" Overall G+.
