On offer is an original, manuscript diary dated 1935 beginning August 17th when the author sets off on the SS American Legion with her husband Harold. [Research suggests her husband's last name is Miller as she identifies 'Mother Miller' as one of the well wishers when they board the ship.] Her birthday is celebrated the very next day aboard ship. She begins to study Portuguese in earnest. In Rio they stay at the 'Gloria'; she reports that everything is very queer and she is scared to death; the language is impossible; lovely descriptions of Rio de Janeiro; going to Coco Casino; the mountains. After a break of 3 weeks she begins detailed entries of her new domestic and social life in Brazil. Historians and collectors of the history of Brazil will recognize 1935 as a very interesting year given the attempted November revolution known as the 'Graf Zeppelin Revolution'. Our writer makes notes and some little commentary regarding the beginnings and ending of the rebellion. Our author does a super job recording the names of her visitors, hosts and companions and the many names include; the Vidals, Miss Coehlo, the Davies, the Shofners, the Pratts, Mrs. Towill, the Redferns of Detroit, Mrs. Redford, Mrs. Oldbergh, Mrs. Burr, the Banfills and many, many more. This leather bound 1935 Bell Telephone French diary in English is about 1/3 filled with hand written entries, 4.25 x 2.5 inches overall G+.
