On offer are the original 1892, 1900, 1901 and 1902 manuscript diaries handwritten by Charles G. Reade of Dayton Ohio. Charles worked for a newspaper and eventually became a preacher. He loves attending the concerts, plays and operas but that seems to lessen as his life as a preacher brings more fervor than his entertainments. In the early diary Charles is dating Nora Boltin then in 1901 he marries Nora and in 1902 has a baby boy. The diaries are full of handwritten entries for every day so you get a good deal of writing and information concerning Charles life.
