Volume seven of Samuel James Reader's diary. The main event in volume seven was the building of an iron bridge which Reader designed across Soldier Creek near his farm. He sold tickets to his lantern slide show to help raise money to pay for his share of the bridge construction. He also used money raised by his lantern slide show to fulfill his duties as a trustee of Rochester Cemetery, the oldest cemetery in Shawnee County. In addition to English, Reader writes the diary in shorthand.
