1926 HANDWRITTEN DIARY LONELY MAN TALKS OF PARIS PROSTITUTES AND VENEREAL DISEASE

Item #55

Handwritten diary from 1926 by a man who worked at Heywood Wakefield in Gardner, Massachusetts. He appears to be a lonely man, and some entries from inside include:

"Mental torture, 2 weeks after marriage. Choose between wife and mother."

"Tonight is the fourth week that Fid has been at Agassi Park. I reached the lowest depths to date of lonesomeness and was rather fore-lorn, too. Went to a motion picture which helped some and then home to bed. Curse the empty, echoing loneliness of this house, which seems to promise only a continuation of loneliness."

"Meanwhile, what is going on in Paris Well, when you walked the Rue, looking for a pretty attractive and feminine with which to spend the night, you found it. A smart looking French girl, trading your glance, engaged you in conversation. She showed you her license. It meant that she had been examined that day by a competent physician, and pronounced free from disease. (had she been found infected, she would have immediately been shipped into the country for a cure!). Now, if you have got to have a woman, you can have her and you had not fear that you will also soon have a dreaded disease. you can not get it tonight, and you can not give it to somebody else tomorrow night. ..."

There are fifteen 5" x 8" handwritten pages by this identified fella (email me for his name), and then there are 5 more pages in the back of this album in another hand. The leather bound loose-leaf notebook measures about 6" x 8.25."

Short, but interesting ramblings of a lonely man.
