Diary No. 4, Mar. 14, 1870-Aug. 1870.

Ca. [40] p. ms. diary in copy book kept by J. H. Shoults. This diary was written from Shoults' home in Whitevale and contains daily entries recording personal, social and professional activities as well as accounts of weather conditions. Although it is clear from this diary that Shoults is still employed as a school teacher and involved in farming activities, the majority of the diary entries make reference to church services or meetings attended by him. It is evident that he is becoming increasingly involved in church activities. He describes church services and meetings he attends (most of which take place at the Christian Church, but some of which take place at the Baptist Church). He also refers to his attempt to establish a Union Sabbath School, as well as his role as teacher of a Bible class, and the small part he has begun to play in preaching during Christian Church services and meetings. Diary entries do, however, continue to make reference to other matters such as social and family visits (including the names of many friends and acquaintances), and to shopping and errands run by Shoults. Once again much reference is made to the price of farm products, food, etc.

The Canadian Pocket Diary for 1885.

Daily entries by Isaac Lucius Bowman in which he records his and his family's work and leisure activities. Isaac would appear to have been very busy man in 1885, as he records many surveying contracts, deeds registered, plans drawn up, etc., as well as his work as treasurer of the Town Council, a post to which he was appointed on January 9 of that year. His cash accounts for the Council are to be found in a notebook later used by his son, Hervey Bowman, now in SCA274-GA417-3-30. He also records (on Feb. 4) that he performed a marriage. Although the entries are fairly straightforward accounts of activities, they cast light on some little-explored aspects of life in nineteenth-century Berlin, as in this entry from Saturday, July 18, 1885: "Attended Love feast, it was a precious sacrament, Receiving of Members in forenoon Baptism in the afternoon at 2 o'clock P.M. in Grand River. 7 immersed and 2 sprinkled. Sunday School Children's meeting at 3 p.m. 6 speakers took part. It was an interesting time ..."
