1 JENNIE I. LEE 1912 AND 1914 HANDWRITTEN MANUSCRIPT DIARY OF A YOUNG GIRL NEAR OSWEGO NEW YORK
Oswego, New York USA 1914 Original Wraps Very Good No Jacket Manuscript 
This is the handwritten personal diary of a young girl named Jennie I. Lee who was most likely in her mid-teens when she wrote in 1912 and 1914. The diary was a Christmas present to her from Mary Gardner. Jennie lived in upstate New York near Oswego. Other towns mentioned in her diary are Belleville, Sandy Creek, Woodville, Adams, Old Forge, and Watertown. She wrote pretty consistently in her diary from New Year's Day 1912 until early June of that year. She skipped 1913, and picked up again on January 1, 1914, writing just about every day until January 27th when she ran out of pages. Jennie's diary is full of the daily comings and goings of her large family and various visitors, neighbors, friends, horses, dogs, stage coaches, sleigh rides, History regents exams, funerals, play rehearsals, annagrams, socials, delivering milk, gardening, etc. Her diary gives a wonderful view of a girl's life nearly 100 years ago in New York farm country. Some excerpts: "Mama fixed a waist for me, didn't get it quite done." "Mason and I went to schoolhouse to a valentine party in evening, 31 children there and six ladies..Mason got prize for drawing best heart with man's face in it-handsome valentine." "Had an offer made me today." "Young people gave their play tonight. Had a fairly good turn out for the kind of night. Rec'd about $14." The writing is clear and legible. The diary itself is a National Diary 1912 covered in blue-grey cloth which shows some edgewear and a few soil spots.
