New Books November 2020

Just one four-book set this month, but it’s a good one!  Robert Lawrence kept a daily diary for most of his life, including the years he was farming and engaging in business in the Wichita area.  The originals are held at First Presbyterian; the archivist, Gary Huffman has been transcribing and annotating them.  These are the first four volumes he’s finished.
