Taken from Alvah Bogart's diary:- "I bargained with John Hicks to work for me from this time, Dec. 23, 1874 until April I, 1875, for $20.00. I went to Kingston with a load of hoops for James Buley and Cornelius Cudney. (It was at this time that every farmer shaved barrel hoops in his spare time.) Bought of Jacob Lockwood a lot of pine trees for which I paid him $20.00. They were to remain standing during the winter. For the peeling of seven cords of bark for the tanneries, I paid Hicks $2.00 a cord. "The diary gives a day by day account of a trip to Michigan and Illinois to visit his brother, Hiram Bogart, and other people who had moved to the middle West - Vera Sickler
