History of Waltham Series Publication #5

NAVY LIFE IN THE TWENTIETH CENTURY: 1900-1903

The Lost Diary of Roy D. Jones

In 1900 a servant to a well-to-do family in Waltham, Massachusetts, enlisted in the United States Navy. For three years, the young sailor, Roy D. Jones, traveled the world, from Boston to China and back again.  In this lost diary, Jones recounts his first year at sea, telling hilarious, unfortunate, and fascinating tales from ports of call, from Tangiers to Barbados.  Abrupt in its ending, and never completed, Jones' diary is nonetheless an engrossing, unparalleled window into the rough and tumble United States Navy at the turn of the twentieth century.

This edition, which is slightly modified with punctuation for ease of reading, contains illustrations and images from the original diary.

NEW PUBLICATION - BEN DOOLING

LEANING LIGHT: POEMS

Ben Dooling

I’d put September in my heart
and carry it around forever—
the colors of my heart would change,
until I drop to the earth with a sigh.
