It is noted that he could see auras and spirits, but did not realize that others were not similarly gifted, which resulted in his being misunderstand and suffering many indignities. The character of the dairy reveals the thoughts, emotions and perplexities of a young man growing up in the North of England in the 1880s. It was first published in 1953, with the permission of the diarist's widow.
