Starting in 1844, Boyle records an early history of his life from his childhood to joining The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Virginia in 1843 and moving to Nauvoo, Illinois, soon after. He begins a diary in 1846 and writes brief entries of events in his life up to 1855, service in the Mormon Battalion, traveling to Utah, first marriage, and his service as a missionary in California.
