This collection contains two diaries written by Joseph Foster during his early adulthood documenting daily activities, sheep
herding, and travel to various regions of California to purchase livestock.
Joseph Foster reports himself being born on August 15, 1856 in Sacramento, California, although this information is not officially
confirmed. Foster arrived in San Diego County in 1868 and boarded with James Johnson. Foster lived with the Johnsons in Sycamore
Valley through his mid-twenties.
