Abstract:

Donoghue, of Lowell, Mass., kept this diary while working as a drugstore clerk and studying pharmacy in Boston. He records his activities in great detail, describing his miserable living conditions with the other clerks above the shop where they worked (Joseph T. Brown & Co., 504 Washington St.). Donoghue describes and characterizes his co-workers, as well as the boardinghouse guests at 43 Bowdoin Street, when he finally moves there. He spends many nights at the theater, seeing Edwin Booth and Lillian Russell perform, visits the Japanese exhibition at Horticultural Hall and a "Mexican village" where he sees tortillas being made; he also attends church services and writes admiringly about Phillips Brooks. Donoghue also describes celebrated local figures, some of whom are customers, such as Celia Thaxter, James Freeman Clarke, Asa Gray, Susan Hale, and William T. Adams ("Oliver Optic"). Donoghue uses the diary to record private feelings - infatuations with young women and a malaise that settles over him. The volume contains numerous recipes for tablets, creams and compounds, indexed. The diary resumes after a gap, May 1887 to May 1888, with the news that in the interim Donoghue had married Caroline Belle Tufts and that they were parents of a baby daughter, Agnes Abigail Donoghue.
