1 "LADY" and MARY 1906 ENIGMATIC HANDWRITTEN MANUSCRIPT DIARY IN TWO HANDS DETAILING PREPARATIONS FOR A WEDDING, THE HONEYMOON AND THE HAPPILY EVER AFTER
STATEN ISLAND NEW YORK REIDSVILLE NORTH CAROLINA 1913 Good Manuscript 
On offer is a rather intriguing 1906 manuscript diary handwritten for the most part by 'Lady' [as identified by the other part time writer who is 'Mary']. Lady is a woman of means, having a number of members in her household who tend to and for her. Mary seems to do most of the writing in the first few weeks of the diary and then Lady takes over. It seems Lady is to marry shortly and is all consumed with preparations. Mary writes: 'sat in library and sewed while Estelle read the papers'; 'Lady' went places'. The diary begins in Staten Island and then for the wedding and thereafter identified as 'Home' in Reidsville North Carolina. We speculate that perhaps Lady is purchasing her trousseau or closing her home. Lady writes: 'Ned and I stamped 1000 announcements; Estelle read to me, Julia watered plants, Louise played; saw Caruso in Pagliacci; Delmonico's for lunch; Capt. Hjortsberg visited; April 24 1906 My Wedding Day'. Lady is tremendously busy and popular having many dozens of visits, appointments and workers and she is attended to by a number of doctors quite closely visiting her at all hours for the least sniffles. Many are named including: Charlie and Laura Gore, Gordon Watt, Dora Sharp, Mrs. Davies Coxe, Mrs. La Montague, Mr. Schwerine, Dr. Bryan, Dr. Armstrong, Nellie Barry ['sewing for me'], Aunt Jane Bierne, Fletcher the Palmist, Margret and Mel Fillman, Mrs. Eugene Watts, Lindsey Ellington, Eva Pasteur, Anna Montgomery, Mag Richardson, Rosa Macgruder, Lottie Pendleton, Olga Violett++++. She also goes on an extended honeymoon by train traveling from North Carolina through the south to Los Angeles up through Vancouver Canada to Winnipeg, Chicago and then back to North Carolina all detailed in this super diary.
