Collection Description

Scope and Content Note

This is the manuscript diary of "J.R.", an unidentified Congregational minister from the Boston area, with references to contemporary personalities and reform efforts. The diary covers the period from January 1, 1851 through May 28, 1882. Entries for the Civil War years discuss sermons on the evils of war and slavery. Of particular interest is the entry for April, 1865 which discusses the Union victory at Richmond, the surrender of General Robert E. Lee, and Abraham Lincoln's death.
