1 HATTIE BAKER 1887 - 1892 ARCHIVE OF THREE (3) ORIGINAL HANDWRITTEN DIARIES BY A VERY PROLIFIC 21 YEAR OLD HOLLAND NEW YORK GIRL
Holland New York NY 1887 Soft Cover Good+ Manuscript 
On offer three diaries all belonging to Hattie Baker of Holland, New York. This first diary represents the year 1887 when Hattie turns 21 and I she was very faithful when writing in her diariy. Once you start reading this personal memoir her amazing life story unfolds which only makes the reader want to know more about Hattie. Intertwined between the pages of her diary you'll find subtle hints, little pieces to the puzzle that give our young woman a sense of mystery to her life. For example, on October 8th, 1887 she writes, "This day will never be forgotten, H & I".Or at one point in the later diary she has been corresponding with a Mr. Smith and in her diary she writes. "I reached my brink this morning, wrote to Mr. Smith. Have a headache, everything is so strange.." and that's just the start. She's also quite the seamstress, sewing dresses and jackets for many people. She travels, attends plenty of social functions and in the last diary starts attending school (college) in Northfield. I'd also like to give you a brief description of a few more of the entries, in Hattie's own words. "Made 9 badges for our society "The Willing Workers".
