On offer is an intriguing handwritten journal of interest to central New York state historians and collectors. Julia M. Fitch of Mt. Vision, Otswego County in New York state authors a diary that is one large part weather diary, a small part history and genealogy and in the memorandum notes a series of recipes and cures; Feather Cake, Sponge Cake, Cream pie, Josephine Cake, Sugar cookies, Fried Cakes, Cold Water Cake, Gingerbread treats and cookies; there are also a few sauces and remedies. Though research failed to identify her age we are certain she is of a mature age, perhaps in her 40s or early 50s, which maybe confirmed to some degree by one surprising notation as an historical marker: "Great Grandfather Captain in the Revolutionary War. Grandfather Captain in War of 1812. Named Benjamin Fitch." A simple online search finds many, many sites for the Fitch family via the war records of Julia's ancestors. Super Americana collectible.
