The diary of William Owen [-Pughe] for the period 1 January 1811- 13 April 1835. The earlier entries, 1811- 1822, appear to have been recopied by the diarist in 1824-1825, and the entire manuscript is written in a very small neat hand. The contents include domestic news, information concerning the writer's literary pursuits, and references to Joanna Southcott and J[ane] Townley, etc., as well as details of weather conditions.
