1902 - Diary
(Source: S.B. Pryor)

This day-book begins with January 22, 1902, and ends with January 6, 1903.

Alfred was away March, April, and May, and on many short trips nearby.  When absent, he left Mr. Jordan in charge.  The day-book was maintained by both, including when Alfred was present.

Background: The photo is of Alfred taken by Johnnie at “Los Palmares” on 24 April, 1902.  (From Auntie Olga's album, kindly lent to us by Susan Horner).

Transcription notes:  We have transribed Alfred’s diary as written, verbatim, without correcting spelling or grammar.  However, we gave him the benefit of the doubt when his writing is difficult to read and words are obvious (e.g. ending in a vs. o).  For words that are unrecognizable, we have inserted our best guess followed by [?].  Our comments are within [square brackets and italics] or in side-notes.  The quarter & month title bars are ours.  (Transcribed by: Would you like to volunteer?)
