On offer is a lovely trip back to pioneer America in the form of a diary of Ella of West River, in the Rochester area of western New York state wherein she spends a great deal of time visiting, doing chores and socializing. She rarely fails to mention by full name and frequently the birthdays of everyone in her area. Many, many dozens of names including: Whitman, Clayton, Pierce, George Howe, Churchill, Goddard, Dr. Bark, Preacher Brooks of Weston, Dr. Lowell, Mr. Stuart, Mrs. Stoodley, Marion Thompson, 18, Mr. Hunts, Emma Woods, Mrs. Robertson, Mr. Willey, Mr. Buxton, Ella F. Thompson, Ella Cheney, 16. We learn her mother is 51 in 1870; Mrs. Clayton 28. We estimate she is mid to late teens given her companions age range and that she does occasionally go to school other than Sunday School. Overall G+ but some pages have been removed, a handful in January. Some in December otherwise the diary is quite full.
