This diary was kept by Andrew Jackson Greene from May 18 through July 30, 1929. This was a period of gloom for Greene. He found life’s burdens to be much too heavy. He used his diary as a place to dump his burdens so that he could continue. He wrote about the things that bothered him, and the things that brought him joy. He typically included information about the weather, his friends and family, the school, and church.
