1 DR. WILL P. SHERIDAN and MRS MARY W. P. SHERIDAN 1909, 1910 & 1911 ARCHIVE OF THREE [3] MANUSCRIPT JOURNALS AND DIARIES OF TWO DEDICATED CANADIAN MISSIONARIES BRINGING WESTERN HEALTH CARE AND CHRISTIAN OUTREACH TO THE SICHUAN PROVINCES WITH THE BACK DROP OF SUN YAT-SEN AND THE REVOLUTION
CHENGTU SICHUAN PROVINCE CHINA 1909 Good 
On offer is a simply super archive of three [3] historically significant manuscript diaries and journals authored and handwritten by Dr. Will P. Sheridan and his wife Mary W.P. dated 1909, 1910 and 1911. [Curiously inscribed noting that the diary is primarily Will's but Mary does the actual writing.] The largish two-days to a page Grand & Toy 8½ x 7 inch journal style books sent by Toronto friend Ethel Cassidy are filled with this extraordinary Canadian missionary and doctor's narrative while in China at the C.M.M. General Hospital Chengtu. Rarely missing days though the 1911 book was delivered to China late but pages from another notebook are enclosed. The writings run from the mundane duties of daily life, observations regarding Chinese medical methods, comparing Western methods and all matters of day to day life like their 4th Wedding Anniversary on Oct. 16th 1911, their baby Virginia adoringly referred to as 'Little Girl Baby' plus almost daily fully written descriptions and opinions of this couple with a keen observant eye and obviously accomplished diarists. Adding a superb depth to the breadth of their mission are a number of ephemeral pieces including letter copies, notes, financials, lists of visitors, Christmas gifts, recipes, newspaper cuttings and Chinese Imperial decrees etc., etc. provide for an extraordinary detailed look into Christian outreach in China at the very moment of China's move into the Modern Era from just before the Wuchang Uprising and the ascendancy of Sun Yat-Sen. Some loss to the spine and detached covers on the 1910 and 1911 books with 1909 VG but overall G.
