Trancscript of Solomon Brees Diary - OCR'd from typed transcript made by Lois V. Brees with an old typewriter on onionskin paper. I tried to catch all corrections, left some words misspelled because the original diary also has them misspelled. Hopefully correct but refer to actual scanned pages of diary (links above) if there is any question.
