Catholic Emigration from Maryland to Kentucky - About 1785

One of the "league" of Catholic families that made this migration was the HAYDEN Family, specifically Basil Hayden. In an article named "The Centenary of Catholicity in Kentucky" written by the Honorable Ben J. Webb, it states that a friend of Basil HAYDEN was a gentleman by the name of Philmer (Philip) LEE. They lived on adjoining farms in the Pottinger's Creek, Kentucky area. Basil stated that Mr. Lee kept a meticulous diary dated 1735 through at least 1786 (and perhaps longer).

I am trying to locate a copy of this diary as it allegedly contains information on the SMITH – FRENCH & MCATEE families that I am researching. Any information on how to access Lee’s Diary would be greatly appreciated.
