Quantity: 1 available


On offer is a handwritten diary kept in a school exercise book with lined pages, by Lilian Soutiere, teacher in School District No. 10, Stantstead, Quebec, Canada. The first entry is "School started on Oct.4, 1909." She then speaks of a dance at Smith's Mills and a Teacher's Conference on Oct 19 at Derby Line. Also numerous references to Beebe, Rock Island, Marlow, Newport, Graniteville, Griffin, and other towns. Lots of local family names. The diary seems to continue through 1913, and then stops in March of 1914. Most entries are just a line or two, and, for the most part, they speak of typical events of the day; trips to local towns, shopping, dances, socials, special events - "I went to see the Canadian Jubilee Singers", visits from friends and relatives, births, deaths - "Geo. Baldwin was found frozen to death in Austin's field." and "Addie Bacon was killed at Berlin (probably NH)" There are also more than a dozen pages documenting her trip to California via Chicago, Omaha, Cheyenne, Laramie, Elko, Salt Lake, and to Oakland, then up and down the coast. There are entries for nearly every day during the span of time. There are a couple of recipes in the back, and the last page has a list of names and addresses of family and friends. CONDITION: Excellent; no rips or splits, no creases. Binding tight, no loose or missing pages.
