recorder (part of speech: noun)
- Diarist 1st Moon - 1st day. - "Seven Maids of Far Cathay", Bing Ding, Ed..
- The diarist himself had no cause to be proud of his own early years, for he was so far indulged in idleness by an " honoured grandmother" that he was " not initiated into any rudiments" till he was four years of age. - "Essays", Alice Meynell.
- But what he left will endure; the fame of an English gentleman who was honest, surrounded by intrigue; unambitious of honours and titles, a royalist who had the friendship of kings whom courtiers flattered; a virtuoso of learning hardly equalled in his time, a diarist whose jottings, never meant for printing, are a classic; a pious, honourable, shrewd, country squire of deep family affections, and set in a niche of his own by all who live and work in the country to- day, as one of the greatest of English woodmen and gardeners. - "Highways and Byways in Surrey", Eric Parker.
