[Diary of Henry Matthews - 1819-1833]

Description: Henry Matthews (1799-18?) was a Methodist circuit rider, schoolteacher, and practicing physician from Ohio, who made his way from Ohio, through the Illinois Territory, to Texas. Primarily a circuit-riding preacher and schoolteacher in his early days in Ohio, Matthews practiced medicine more formally in the 1830s and 1840s in San Felipe, Texas, where Matthews and his wife Miranda eventually settled. This final volume also appears to be primarily a private diary, but many of the entries are made over printed finance notes, for which the book was originally printed. Entries range from weather reports to crop and garden reports to mentions of Matthews’ medical practice in San Felipe and appears to be a diary that includes personal and religious notes. There are loose pages at the end. The first two thirds is written right side up, there is a break in the writing, and the rest of the book is filled from the back writing right-side-up with respect to that cover, so that the book needs to be flipped upside-down to be read.
