1 H. A. DWELLE 1888 HANDWRITTEN MANUSCRIPT TRAVEL DIARY OF A YOUNG WOODLAND CALIFORNIA GIRL HEADING TO THE MID-WEST - FUTURE AUTHOR/HISTORIAN OF IOWA [?]
Woodland, California CA 1888 Leather Good+ None Manuscript 
On offer is a very scarce Pacific Coast Diary with entries from Wednesday November 28th to Sunday September 1st, 1888. Our writer appears to be a young woman; 18 to 20 years old we suspect. She has written H. A. DWELLE WOODLAND CAL. on the inner free endpaper. Miss Dwelle has over written the January 1st through June 29th pages but as mentioned the dates overwritten are in fact November 28th to September 1st. The first months involve a great deal of travel to Iowa City, Salt Lake etc. On return Miss Dwelle still travels a great deal but then mostly one to three day trips. She writes of teaching but also many meetings, speaking engagements of the Knights Templar wherein she has administrative responsibilities. Also frequent references to Masonic Lodges, YMCA, youth picnics, Sunday School and Church. Very interesting is her near final entry of August 31st - "Finished Teacher's Exam. Went at 2 pm to the funeral of Granpa Graves and sang in choir. Mr. Starring preached sermon. Very unsatisfactory and feeble effort considering the grand subject before him." Leather bound, measuring approx. 4 inches high by 2 1/2 inches wide. RESEARCH NOTE: Casual research finds an H.A. Dwelle as author of a book on the history of Iowa. There is a possible connection of some dates corresponding to the authors possible age etc. An avid collector or library may find a treasure with further research.
