Dudley Johnson 1872 diary

Dudley Johnson (FINDAGRAVE) lived in South Hadley Massachusetts in 1872 when he wrote a diary for that year. I was offered the diary from a generous donor and, after scanning each page, have donated the diary to the Holyoke History Room at the Holyoke Public Library. What makes this diary special is the Dudley Johnson was great friends with the Newton Brothers of Holyoke and references them many times within his daily entries. See the scans below to read the dairy.
