REMARKS:Two copies, one photocopy and one typed copy on yellow paper, of diary kept by George Clark. Introduction to typed copy [probably prepared as a newspaper or magazine article] says, "George M. Clark kept a diary from January 1, 1863[,] until March 1876. During that period of time, he recorded the buring of houses near Healdsburg, California, by secessionists in Civil War days; driving cattle through norther[n] California and eastern Oregon at a time when Indians regularly stole horses and stock; farming on rented ground in Garden Valley; and finally, moving to Linn County where the Clark family wento the sawmill business. Through the kindness of Sharon Myers, we are pleased to bring you excerpts from this pioneer journal. The diary begins on George Munford Clark's farm in California.]
