1 SHERBURNE M. GRAHAM 1886 ORIGINAL MANUSCRIPT DIARY OF A YOUNG NEW JERSEY WOMAN WHOSE LIFE BOTH AT WORK AND HOME MAKE FOR A 19TH CENTURY SOAP OPERA
KEYPORT WHALE CREEK NEW JERSEY NJ 1886 Good+ 
On offer is a very interesting and intriguing 1886 manuscript diary dated July 11th 1886 through to December 25th 1886, handwritten by a young woman named Sherburne M. Graham of, we believe New Jersey. Her passing references to Whale Creek, Keyport, the boat Wm. E. Bishop, assuredly pinpoint New Jersey as her locale. Historians and collectors of the place and times will find this diary unique inasmuch that Miss Graham brings a soap opera quality to her writings describing the politics, back stabbing, inter personal relations and gossip that occurs at work in a retail store. Upon her return from a vacation she writes that she is worried that while away from the store 'some serious mistake discovered during my absence and for which I would get a laying out.' She then admits to poor work ethic prior to her vacation as she was disconsolate she was refused a raise. The back drop of her family: a preacher father and an ill mother and her other close personal relationships add to the narrative. In one example her father calls in an allopathic doctor for her mother. After some time the Doctor performs an "operation" on her mother who had a side abscess. The doctor had been treating her to no avail and after several days, gave her some ether and lanced her side (after the gruesome description, he said he thought he had accidentally cut the intestines). The largish flip style diary has approximately 160 pages measuring about 8-1/4" x 4-1/2". Overall G+.
