Several years ago I had the good fortune to find, in the lumber and rubbish of a storeroom, this little journal. A small leather-backed notebook, it had lain unnoticed and forgotten for more than half a century in the author's old homestead. The original manuscript is written in a 4 by 6-inch notebook, bound in boards. It contains 180 pages of text with pressed western flowers and plants pasted on the five fly leaves at the end.
