1 EMMA L. KITCHELL [nee REYNOLDS] 1863 ORIGINAL MANUSCRIPT NEW JERSEY CIVIL WAR HOMEFRONT DIARY OF A 29 YR OLD WOMAN HOPING TO BE A BETTER CHRISTIAN IN THE NEW YEAR
NEWARK MENDHAM NEW JERSEY NJ 1863 Good Manuscript 
On offer is a nice, original manuscript relic of the Civil War year of 1863 handwritten by Emma L. Kitchell [nee Reynolds] of Mendham and Newark New Jersey. Emma seems to be a down to earth, hardworking woman who on New Year's Day hopes the coming year finds her a better Christian. In fact the thread of religion winds its way throughout the narrative. On her 29th birthday, January 27th, she writes that 'about a year since I gave myself to God. Oh how unfaithful I have been. I have been devoted to God. May this year see me more.' There are some reports of the war but the year seems to be one of sickness: children with the measles, bad colds, sore throats, fevers +++. Never-ending work, constant sickness, the war and Emma continues to 'chore'. The in February Emma writes: 'Decided to go to H & L Entertainments. Quite a treat for me to go out an evening.' Collectors, historians and researchers of this era and the New Jersey area will find a treasure trove of names and local events observed and noted by Emma. In the back of the diary are cash account spending records etc. This leather diary measures 4" x 3" and overall is G+.
