This fonds contains the original and a photocopy of a diary kept by a foreman of Richard Gridley who was living on Amherst, in the Magdalen Islands. The diary provides a glimpse into the lives of the inhabitants of Amherst in 1777, describing daily activities such as farming, and cutting wood. They made barrels for the crews of Richard Gridley's vessels and also for the Acadian settlers. Each entry begins with weather conditions of the day and usually mentions which vessels had been sighted at the time.
Gridley, Richard, Colonel
