1 KATHERINE DAVIS 1922 HANDWRITTEN MANUSCRIPT DIARY RELATING THE SPIRITUAL JOURNEY AND DIFFICULT LIFE OF ILLNESS AND HER COURAGE TO FACE IT
HAVERHILL BREWSTER SEA PINES MASSACHUSETTS MA 1922 Good Manuscript 
On offer is the remarkable handwritten journal/diary of Katherine Davis of Haverhill Massachusetts [23 years old at the commencement of writing]. Entries begin June 1, 1922 and continue through the 1930s over the fully written 152 pages. This 8.5 x 6 inch book is a rare combination of Katherine's spiritual journey as she strives to be an enlightened Christian and the trials of medical problems that dog her; spina bifida [which involved 9 months of operations], a mastoidectomy and serious problems with her eyes. That said she is also a young woman with many friends and this too is laid bare. Throughout the journal it is clear that Ms. Davis is a character of remarkable strength who views her medical trials as God's method of preparing her for whatever role He has for her. But Katherine is still a young woman with all the wants and desires of any young woman and as a casual reading provides she has a busy good life with family and friends. The family appears to be wealthy commuting between Haverhill and a home in Brewster Massachusetts on Cape Cod called Sea Pines. The journal is littered with ephemera; letters, notes between school girl friends, photos and some news clippings. This is truly a deep look into the life, heart and soul of a very intriguing young woman. The front cover is detached but present, the spine cap missing but interiors are in very good shape. Overall G.
