About this Item: s.n., S.l., 1904. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good -. [Approx. 300] p.: illustrations; 15 cm. Black diced leather; red-and-white paper label on back cover with "1905" written on it. Bookseller's stamp on front fixed endpaper for the Brooks Co., Cleveland. Former owner's inscription on front free endpaper: "S. A. Fate, Edison, Ohio." The first 32 pages contain the usual printed almanac information, including: astronomical information for 1905; domestic and foreign postage; interest tables; a weekly table of wages for up to 8 hours a day; values of foreign coins in American dollars; "Valuable information for business men"; and income on stocks at various interest rates. The remainder contains lined pages for a daily diary and monthly financial records. Samuel A. Fate was a farmer near Edison, Ohio, with 104 acres in Canaan Township, Morrow County. He filled in every day of 1905 in this diary and recorded his monthly cash accounts. A wonderfully detailed snapshot of life in central Ohio at the beginning of the 20th century. Samuel A. Fate (1856-1930) was born in Maryland; his family moved to Pennsylvania and then Ohio. After high school, he obtained a teacher's certificate and taught in the local Ohio schools for 11 years. In 1878 he married Emily E. Worden (1859-1921), known as Nettie; they had two children, Oscar (1878-1962) and Maud. In 1905, Oscar was working a nearby farm; by 1911 Maud had married H. S. Gruber, another local farmer. In this diary, Samuel records daily temperature, weather, and the times he got up in the morning and "retired" in the evening. During the winter he and his neighbors butchered hogs; he enjoyed sledding; and he attended the farmers' institute in Cardington. In the spring he assessed his neighbors' property as tax assessor; planted fruit trees; sheared the sheep; and painted the house and outbuildings. On May 30, he and a friend went to Mt. Gilead for Decoration Day celebrations and a ball game. The summer was busy with haying, an ice cream party, and "a ball game with Indians." In August he attended a caucus and a convention, noting "Quite a contest for represenative." In Sept., he and a friend went to the Ohio State Fair; the Epworth League held a "Mellon Social"; and he went to the local fair in Marion with a group several times. In Oct. his leg and foot were injured in an agricultural accident, so his son and neighbors took over his harvesting and regular chores for the two weeks until he could walk on that foot again. He spent most of the fall husking corn, but took a break on Nov. 7 when he and his son voted in the election. On Nov. 14 he, his wife, and two others took the train to Pennsylvania to visit relatives, not returning until Dec. 8. He enjoyed reading regularly in the evening, on Sundays, and on inclement days, and going to the see the theater in Mt. Gilead with his brother-in-law or wife. In Very Good- Condition: lacking some leather from spine; leather has separated from card back cover; lacking lower corner of back cover; pages are clean and tight. Seller Inventory # 006927
