1 CRANE, MRS. A. L. (FRANCES) 1917 HAND WRITTEN MANUSCRIPT ADIRONDACK VACATION AND HUNTING TRIP DIARY OF MRS. A.L. (FRANCES) CRANE
New York State 1917 Original Wraps Good+ Manuscript 
1917 Adirondack vacation and hunting trip travel diary of Mrs A. L. Crane, starting Sept. 27th from Afton and by way of a train in Utica making way to Beaver River. It appears our writer is the new Mrs. Crane as she refers to one of the large suitcases having a "Just Married" sign attached. (Turns out she is a joker as since I listed this diary I have discovered her 1901 travel diary with mention of the same husband!!) There seem to be a fair number of people in her party. She frequently mentions that the 'men' have all gone off and done this or done that. Mention of hunting and the trials of camping out. Our writer confides to the blank page of her aches and pains and her 'old bones' aching but she won't complain to the others 'as they don't neither will I'. Here are some other excepts: "Tuesday 9th, went up to the RR tracks and got another b.b. pie. Myron got worried about me and came looking for me. Spent a most miserable day. I wish I had never come to the woods. I never will with the same company again. Things are too strenuous. I can be with E. day after day with never a ripple in our friendship but R. rubs me the wrong way." "Thurs 11th. R and I have divided the work and I hope there will be no more friction." "Fri 12th. Rain rain go away come again another day and it will come again another day all right. It commenced as we were getting breakfast - Myron finished baking pancakes under an umbrella." "Sun. 14th. M and I took a short cut and found Dan Popes camp and left our calling card…we found one of the seats made of a barrel that the used at Bearver River. I wrote on it in pencil 'A.L. Crane and Wife called here…and found no one at home." Mrs. Crane mentions the names of everyone they meet, everyone met at other camps, the weather and even what was eaten. She is quite detail oriented and shares her feelings very generously. This is a super diary and given that this is five weeks in the rough it is far more than a mere travel diary. Fourteen leaves, 28 pages of writing, about half in this 5 x 8 inch 'Student Note Book'. Sometimes she writes in pencil some times in pen. In very good shape save for some old dampstaining.
