On offer is an interesting and unique 1921 manuscript diary handwritten primarily by Rose Saba and sometimes, we believe, by her husband Saleem N. Saba. The free end paper states their names and 'Now in Zahlah Syria Former Res. Toronto Ont. Canada.' [We note that Zahlah is part of Lebanon today.] Entries are for the most part in English but there are entries in Arabic which we believe Saleem wrote. Rose writes many interesting entries which range from Saleem's travels throughout to Beirut, Damascus and her own doings at home from the mundane such as ironing, meals, visits and news from home. We also note that they are a Christian family as they frequently go to church. The diary was located in Toronto and we hypothesize that they moved back from Syria at some point. Historians and researchers of early independent Syria and Lebanon will no doubt find this diary an interesting and unique travel relic of the times. Overall VG.
