Inside the front cover, in a hand consistent with what we believe to be
that of Robert Booth, are the notations
Robert Booth.....his book......1824
the Bay mare had a colt 17? of Apriel 1824
On the first page (blank) there is a note at the top of the page that is
unreadable to me, badly damaged by insects and wear.
The bottom of the page is eaten or torn away 1 1/2 to 2 inches, so
there/s no telling what might have been written in that area. Written
upside down and flowing out of that torn area is the notation of a date,
the third digit of which has been eaten, but it appears to be 1835 and
....(something eaten)...marian Pery County Alabama (Present day Marian,
Alabama is located in Perry County...the note may have been reference to
some member of Robertís family who had moved to Marian. The Booths were
well represented in central Alabama. My great grandfather, William King
Booth, spent the Civil War years in Montgomery....with a relative?.
On the title page, in a box provided for the purpose of identifying the
book as The PROPERTY OF is written: Robert Booth, Praise fore Dollars
