This handwritten paper dated 1776 looks to be a journal/diary of author. Strings holding text block. There seems to be a missing page and two pages are missing half pages. This is a personal diarylike journal that contains handwritten notes of author in ink with poems, Ben Franklin obituary, Bill of Parcel, an Epitaph, List of children with birth dates from 1785 to 1806. (assumed to be Jared's children but no wife's name given). At the bottom of each page is written "Jared Lillie's book 1776" The handwriting is excellent and there are handwritten "decorations" throughout. Many of the pages have "ink blotting" that makes some pages hard to read. There are also arithmetic computations/calculations on a few pages. Research shows a Jared Lillie born March 27, 1759 to a Elisha and Hulda (Tilden) Lillie from Windham, Ct. This may be the same Jared as one of the children listed in the Journal is Elisha which would be Jared's father's name. There is no listing of a city, state or location in the journal so Windham, Ct could be correct or incorrect. This is an excellent example of a "period" piece of early Americana ephemera dated the year 1776. See scan of cover. Book now in archival sleeve to protect condition. Rare, unique. ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 12 pages

Price = 249.97 USD
