On offer is an original manuscript diary dated 1843 and 1849 handwritten by an unidentified man attending Dartmouth College in the 1843 part which covers 26 pages wherein we find he is married, appears to be a Divinity student, describes his lessons and waxes philosophical regarding the plight of man and how he longs for letters from home. He also notes attending Church in the home of Reverend Cutter. Later in 1849 he writes 13 pages of entries from St. Louis, Missouri where he is apparently teaching at a boys' school. On Oct. 15th he writes: "Today is a great day for St. Louis. The National Railroad Convention met here today to deliberate on the momentous subject on constructing a railroad to the Pacific Ocean." The beautiful old book with leather spine and marbled boards, some scuffing on corners and edges, and there is some brittleness with the initial text block pulled away from the spine. He writes in a graceful script. Overall Fair+.
