This is a fantastic journal of early life in Connecticut and helped to answer questions regarding my Beebe ancestors. The fact that Joshua Hempstead could write and that he kept a daily journal is amazing and even more so that he kept a daily journal! Even if you don't have ancestors that are mentioned in the book, it's an interesting read, but for those who had ancestors living in New London during Joshua's lifetime, it's a gem of a journal.
