Publisher: Pennsylvania, 1913

Seller ID: 000017b

This is an interesting diary representing the year of 1913. The diary is completely full of handwritten entries, with a page a day for writing. We are not quite sure about who kept the diary but we do know that the husband (Charles) writes all the way up until the middle of June and then the wife takes over.

They also mention so many names, some of which are; Livingston, Randall, Harvey, Miles, Dodge, Whiteside,... View more info
