1 RUBY M. BAILEY 1913 HANDWRITTEN MANUSCRIPT DIARY OF 29 YR OLD SHERBROOKE QUEBEC WOMAN - DEDICATED DIARIST
Sherbrooke, Quebec, Cananda 1913 Original Cloth Very Good Manuscript 
Ruth Bailey is 29 years old, Jan 28th, 1913. She is a very dedicated diarist recording the highlights and weather each and everyday. She notes bank depostis and purchases and all manner of entertainments she attends. Letters received and written are all recorded. She also mentions many hundreds of people and local events of which here is a hodge-podge: Dr. Darch, Jessie and Eleanor St. Denis, Alex Blue funeral, Jenny Boynton, Jimmy Harkness dropped dead on his train, Maude Thompson, Mount Notre Dame Convent, Henry Birks and Sons, Mina Kerr, Louisa Phillips in Cuba, Mrs. Chas. B. Howard, Dr. Shreve's Lenten lecture, Jean Mitchell marriage Bruce Fletcher reception cancelled because old Mrs. McKecknie died, organist Mr. Bearder concert at St. Peter's, Nellie Long, Chief Davidson burial, Juvenile Pollard Co. of Australia's stage production 'Sargeant Bruce', etc., etc. Ruby is also a religious Roman Catholic (she mentions taking Communion Christmas Day) woman much of whose life, along with her mom and sister Nellie, spend going to Church, attending lectures at Church or having dinner or get-togethers with certain Church connected friends. Interestingly she attends functions at all the churches - Catholic, Protestant and Epicopalian and Presbyterian are all mentioned. I believe she works for a paper mill and or a large printer as she mentions working with paper and printers on a large scale. Also I note of interest is that she writes as a pure anglophone. Not a hint or trace of French in this woman that lives in a very french provincial town. Perhaps she was originally from elsewhere. This is a super peek at a typical Quebec provincial life in the early 20th century. Diary is in very good shape.
