. Charles Francis Adams, Diary, 23 October 1826
2:85). This 354-page volume measures 8 1/2” × 6 1/2”; the spine covering is missing,
but a handwritten label gives the diary number and inclusive dates. In numbering his
own diaries, Charles Francis Adams designated this book as No. 2, but in the Adams Papers
serial numbering it is No. 5 (D/CFA/5). The
book was packed away, unfinished, when Adams returned to Boston in July 1827. On 4
September 1829, the day following his marriage, having meanwhile completed two other
diary volumes, he began using the remaining blank pages of D/CFA/5 for his daily
record through 16 May 1830, beyond the time span of the two volumes now published.
