Scope & Content Route book and financial account book kept by Thomas H. Hodge. Included is a hand written route list for G.F. Bailey's Circus from 1864 and a similar route list for L.B. Lent's Circus for 1865. The remainder of the diary appears to be a financial account book-possibly for Hodge's personal expenses including one entry noting expenses owed by L.B. Lent's Circus. The diary also contains scattered financial notes dating to 1893 and two undated references possibly regarding items sold to P.T. Barnum.
