The second diary, 1866-1868, of Lewis Humphreys of Penybanc, near Bronwydd Arms, Carmarthenshire, who emigrated to America in 1855. He initially settled in Youngstown, Ohio, and thence to Kentucky. He went on an expedition to Montana in 1866, which he started to describe in the first diary and continues into a second diary. A fragment of a letter (in Welsh) dated 1864 kept with the diary is from his brother, Thomas, who fought in the American Civil War.
