Today begins the diary of F.E. Filsinger, from 100 years ago.
Just a little background. F is 25 years old and lives at 504 Stinard Ave in Syracuse NY. He works in a factory and has a wife named Bess. That's all I'm telling for now. On to our first entry. Don't worry, they get better and day by day you can piece his life together.
Up home to dinner. Pearse Smich from the factory was up to dinner.
His penmanship is pretty and small. This is written in a small leather bound pocket diary and there are 3 days per page which tells you how much room he has to write.
