Dear Diary

We, the men of course, are carefully disguised, for it would never do for us to be recognized, particularly in the company we so much prefer. 19-Feb 1819
A great peace maker: the diary of James Gallatin, secretary to Albert Gallatin, 1813-1827

As part of our book display on diaries we are posting a brief extract from a random selection of diaries, journals and guides on diary writing for all of February. We hope that these snippets will inspire you to read somebody's diary!
