Just a Note

I must make a comment here about the diary I am putting up here. Some of the words don't make sense to me either. I have no idea what "morning smornery" is or what a "removal card" is. I am coping as I can read it leaving __ where it is not legible any longer.

I should post every so often what this diary is and dates to let some one just coming to the blog know what these pages are and who wrote it.

John Braden is my great great grandfather. He was born December 19, 1864 in Illinois. He started this diary when he moved to Webster City, Iowa in 1898. The diary spans over a year with a few entries after.

I am enjoying trying to read the older style of print and language!
