On offer is the remarkable handwritten journal/diary of Katherine Davis of Haverhill Massachusetts [23 years old at the commencement of writing]. Entries begin June 1, 1922 and continue through the 1930s over the fully written 152 pages. This 8.5 x 6 inch book is a rare combination of Katherine's spiritual journey as she strives to be an enlightened Christian and the trials of medical problems that dog her; spina bifida [which involved 9 months of operations], a mastoidectomy and serious problems with her eyes. That said she is also a young woman with many friends and this too is laid bare. Throughout the journal it is clear that Ms. Davis is a character of remarkable strength who views her medical trials as God's method of preparing her for whatever role He has for her. But Katherine is still a young woman with all the wants and desires of any young woman and as a casual reading provides she has a busy good life with family and friends. The family appears to be wealthy commuting between Haverhill and a home in Brewster Massachusetts on Cape Cod called Sea Pines. The journal is littered with ephemera; letters, notes between school girl friends, photos and some news clippings. This is truly a deep look into the life, heart and soul of a very intriguing young woman. The front cover is detached but present, the spine cap missing but interiors are in very good shape. Overall G.
