This document includes the full text of Colonel Israel Angell's Diaries compiled by Edward Field and published in 1899. It also includes the text of three manuscript diaries from the collections of the Massachusetts Historical Society in Boston, Massachusetts. These diaries were transcribed and digitized by Norman Desmarais and inserted in their proper location in Field's text. The diaries are organized here by the year of coverage rather than by the individual manuscripts as in Field's book. The five chronological sections of this combined text are also available as individual downloads in the supplemental materials section of this page.
