JOHN LEONARD RIDDELL DIARY 

   Your editor has picked up another book relating to 
   New Orleans mint official John Leonard Riddell, who 
   was discussed in The E-Sylum last year.  In 1994, 
   Texas A&M Press published "A Long Ride in Texas," 
   The book is an annotated reprint of "a lively diary 
   Riddell kept"  while traveling through Texas in the 
   1830's. 

   The book's editor, James Breeden, writes in the 
   introduction:  "Riddell's education was meager because 
   of limited opportunities and having to work on the family 
   farm, which he hated to the point of being characterized 
   as "a very lazy boy", and receiving "frequent floggings."
