The lower half of the first page of the journal has been torn off. Within the text, there is evidence that three pages were removed, but the narrative does not seem to be affected.
Diary has been written in from both directions.
The diary describes a journey from Albany, Illinois to Aspen, Colorado in the summer of 1886. The author and several other men drove horses overland to Kensaw, Nebraska, transported the stock by rail to Denver, and finally took them overland to Aspen. In Aspen, the author worked a mine with Ira Bacheler and others. Eddy comments on the towns they visited as well as the fields and crops. He occasionally mentions his partners, A. H. Hendrix who they met on the road, and the men he worked with in Aspen. The journal ends with the arrival of Eddy's wife and child in Aspen.
