HISTORIC MILITARY DIARIES, LETTERS & DOCUMENTS
“No possession can surpass or even equal a well-kept diary. Memory once interrupted is not to be recalled, but a written record is a fixed luminary, a faithful repository, which everlastingly preserves events in their proper stations. Here are stored riches which increase by being consumed and pleasures which never cloy. Something for ornament, much for curiosity and more for use—an honorable part of a man’s history.”—Soldiers-Sailors Diary and English-French Dictionary, published by World Syndicate Co., Inc., 110 W. 40th St., New York City, 1917.
