Burroughs, John, 1837-1921
1 volume, 17 x 12 cm.
The transcripts, originally made by Clara Barrus and Elizabeth Burroughs Kelley, should be viewed as a map to the original. Due to the difficulty of interpreting handwriting, complete accuracy of the transcripts cannot be ensured.
The period in Burrough' s life covered in this journal includes the death of his mother, the assassination of President Garfield, the passing of Ralph Waldo Emerson and the death of his favorite dog. He includes his usual reports on weather and nature, but also muses frequently on life and death.
