1 folder (0.1 linear feet)

The Diary of Daniel MacFarlan provides daily entries that detail the daily life of a fire insurance inspector from Yonkers, New York. MacFarlan was very religious and depended on God to endure trouble in the home caused by his drinking and servant, Jennie, as well as a possible lawsuit from the church secretary. MacFarlan traveled for work and wrote, in detail, every day. MacFarlan was from a notable family; his father, Thomas, was a financial agent for Peter Gerard Stuyvesant and Hamilton Fish. There are paintings of MacFarlan and his family in the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
