On offer is a super, original manuscript diary handwritten a charming 11 year old boy named Brinley Morgan Hall of 285 Clarendon Street in Boston Massachusetts. Obviously from a family of some means he mentions "Mademoiselle" often and his activities include horseback riding, playing golf, baseball, football and tennis. He is also a devotee of Mah Jongg! Brinley is also a dedicated diarist writing everyday everyday, sometimes a few lines, sometimes the entire page is filled. Given the diary book is 6 x 9 inches that is quite a feat for an 11 year old! Here are some snippets: "Jan 4: this was my birthday. It had snowed hard in the night and there was a lot of snow on the ground. We had our second skating lesson. The sun began to shine just before our skating lesson, which was from 11:30 to 12. I was 11 years old March 3: In the morning I had my hair cut. In the afternoon, I went over to Cambridge then for a ride. In the evening, I went to Harvard Yale hockey game with Foxley and Daddy. Yale won 3-0. There was no scoring in the first period. In the second period Yale's captain broke loose......" We note that he has made some entries and then covered them with paper and written another entry over top. With very little effort one can read the under lying entry. This diary is a hardcover date book with white stamping on the cover. The binding is a bit loose but overall G.
