Diary of Henry Nase

Loyalist Henry Nase of Dover, New York kept his diary from the day of his 1776 enlistment in King's American Regiment until 1797, after he had settled in New Brunswick. The two recipes appear between the entries for 19 December 1785 and 22 March 1786. According to the Dictionary of Canadian Biography, Nase contracted to build at least one house, for the Major John Coffin under whom he had served. Nase eventually settled in Westfield at the mouth of the Nerepis River, where he became lieutenant colonel of the local militia and there now operates a ferry that carries his name.
