Diary, 1 September 1867-2 May 1873, of Nicholas Talley
Manuscript volume, 1 September 1867-2 May 1873, diary of Nicholas Talley, documents the daily activities of this itinerant Methodist preacher who served throughout Georgia, North Carolina, and South Carolina in various capacities from 1811 to 1865.

Included are entries on daily chores, conferences, correspondence, family activities, funerals, gardening, church services, scripture for sermons, travel, visitations, and weather conditions. Talley had been superannuated since November 1865, and his ministerial roles were therefore greatly reduced. Nonetheless, he maintained an active lifestyle. The final diary entry celebrates his eighty-second birthday, and according to Albert M. Shipp's History of Methodism in South Carolina Talley died eight days later on 10 May 1873.
