There also are handwritten notes on the back cover that are upside-down in relation to the front cover.
The following is a chronology of notes in this notebook:
Adolf Schlatter and Louise Kleiner Schlatter appear to have returned to Switzerland in August or September 1908
Based on records obtained from Ellis Island, NY, Adolph (Adolf) Schlatter and Emma Schlatter arrived at Ellis Island on 31 October 1910; departed from Antwerp. They were married 25 September 1910.
The following article is a page-by-page transcription of entries in the MEMORANDUM notebook. Several pages of this notebook are lists of items purchased – quantity, item, cost. Those pages ARE NOT included in this transcription. The only pages transcribed are those with entries describing activities, travels, and the like.
In this transcription are several references to "Louise," "L.," "the Baby," and to "Louise and the Baby." I have determined that my grandfather, Adolph Schlatter, married a woman named Louise Kleiner in March 1906, probably in Memphis, TN, and they apparently had a daughter.
Louise Kleiner was from Switzerland. She came to the US in November 1900 with a man named Solomon Barfuss, a Swiss citizen who was a naturalized American citizen. They were married in New York City in November 1900 and apparently moved to Barfuss' home in Memphis. They were divorced in Shelby County, MS, in October 1905.
In March 1906, a marriage license was issued in Shelby County, MS, for Adolph Schlatter and Louise Kleiner.
Based on entries in this notebook/diary, Louise and Adolph lived in Senatobia, MS, where he operated a bakery until they returned to Switzerland in August 1908. Adolph, Louise, and "the baby" traveled around Switzerland from late 1908 until mid-1910.
On 31 October 1910, my grandparents, Adolph Schlatter and Emma Waldner, arrived at Ellis Island, NY. According to Adolph's application for US citizenship (he died before he became a citizen), they were married 25 September 1910 (in Switzerland) and settled in Shaw, MS.
In January 1911 Adolph filed for divorce from Louise in the Shelby County, TN, court. In June 1911 he asked that the suit be dropped. I have no further information about Louise and "the baby." As of January 2011 I am trying to track down Louise and her daughter through relatives in Switzerland.

The original footbridge must be the one referred to on the next page.)
