A JOURNAL WRITTEN IN 1891

by

Unknown Author

There are implications that the author worked for a Watertown, N. Y. doctor.
There are also many references to people who lived in Depauville, N. Y.
The latter part of the diary gives clues that the diarist may have been a Sternberg.
The “inventory” at the end indicates that someone who wrote in this book owned a store.
This journal was found among the possessions of Wm. Conklin, of Muskalonge between Brownville and Dexter, in Jefferson County, N. Y.
