1 Ina A. Eastman, 10 Year Old Girl 1898 AND 1899 HANDWRITTEN MANUSCRIPT DIARIES COMPLETELY FULL BY THE HAND OF A 9 OR 10 YEAR OLD SEACONIA NEW HAMPSHIRE GIRL
1898 Original Cloth Very Good+ No Jacket Manuscript 
Two handwritten diaries written by a very young child, Ina (or Ira?) A. Eastman, of Seaconia, New Hampshire. At first, I thought these were written by a boy, but at the end on the 1899 diary, there are mentions of ribbons and fabric in the memo section. The other diary is from 1898. The child wrote everyday, but never mentioned a birthday. She seems to have been about 9 or 10 years old. Some examples of her writing are below: It is a nice day. Henry Courser stayed here last night. Mamma, Jay and I have been down to grandpas. Papa finished drawing wood today. It is a nice day. Willis Smith has been here. Papa and Jay have been down to Mr. Taylorís. Gale Eastman and Charley Tilton have been here. It has rained some. Papa has been down to Mr. Taylorís to butcher. Mr. Gardner has whitewashed the pantry and kitchen. Our school began today. Ella Thompson is our teacher. It is a nice day. Papa has been over to Meredith Village with apples. Jay and I have been to school. It is a nice day. Papa and mamma stayed over to Mrs. Hillard Sanborn all night last night. She died this afternoon. Jay and I have been down to Grandpas. We have got 9 more chickens. Papa has been over to Laconia. We have all been over to Betsy Robertís auction. It is a nice day. Both diaries are written in pencil, and she never missed a day of writing. Each diary measures 3 x 6 inches, and they are in very good condition. Charming look into pioneer life from a young child. Very rare as such.
