Entries are dated and include a range of details. Some summarize or cite publications. Most entries are narrative in style and describe collecting in the region of his home. They begin with a description of where specimens were found, discussion of environment including vegetation, followed by detailed descriptions of insect specimen (combination of type, stage of development, sex, appearance of anatomy with measurements and coloration, diet, sometimes behavior). Entries also include lists of specimens (number, type, and location); discussion of lab work; and personal observations with quotes from other students, observers, and journals, often relating to economic aspects of entomology. There are also attached and loose sketches of insects. Includes pasted news clippings about insect infestations. At the end of the volume are notes from the proceedings of the Rock Island County Branch of the Kansas Settlers Society of Chicago Illinois, June 12-25, 1856, as well as a list of correspondents. Locations include but may not limited to sites in Illinois. Locations are often specified by county, town or property owner's name, without indicating state.

He confined his observations to natural phenomena and had little to say about events of the day. He highlights the text with notes in the margins indicating when he is describing birds, weather and other pertinent details. Locations are indicated at the top of pages. There are plant specimens and two snake skins in the notebook. Includes an appendixes and indexes describing birds and trees of California and Columbia Region.

Stelfox lists the name of the specimen, date collected, sex, quantity, sometimes remarks on the weather (ex. “a wettish, dull day!”), location, and sometimes specific type of environment. By 1924, his lists contain more narrative style descriptions, although continue to remain brief. Some specimens in 1926 were collected by R. A. Phillips. Localities include, but are not limited to Malahide, Portmarnock, Rush, Wicklow River, Arklow,and Spanish Point.
