On offer is a charming, original 1928 manuscript diary handwritten by Loulie D. Quinn [sometimes Quin, b. about 1857] who lived in Macon, Bibb County, Georgia and was 71 years old when she wrote this diary and lived with her son Hugh, her daughter Helen and her grandchildren, after being widowed a few years before. A very sweet lady who loved animals had a charming, sweet manner and much compassion for people and animals alike. She never has an unkind word to say, even through all the trials she faces. She writes about many things, at times she is sick and stays upstairs in her room, and she talks about the people who visit her, her family friends, the weather, and of course, the latest news. She says she doesn't know how many more mothers days she might have left, and that she feels she hasn't done much in her life. She talks about her son Hugh, who goes out of town to work and how much she misses and worries about him, about her grandchildren and what they are up to, about her little goldfish's water freezing and then them dying, but Hugh brings her a new one, about the little dog Julie, getting hit by a car, but is okay, and all stove up the next day, and her grand daughters puppy getting run over and killed, and how much it upsets her. Hugh brings Loulie a little six week old kitten, who she names Fluff, and how Fluff wakes her up to feed her, about going on vacation with her family, about a Dr. in town taking poison and dying in his office, while someone was with him. She writes about her precious son, Louis dying of malaria, and how much it hurts her. Her daughter picks up the diary and on one page she writes about how her mother took to her bed, and how many people came to visit her mother and how kind they were to her, during her time of grief. She eventually gets out of bed and does better, but is still heartbroken about her son's death. The diary 7" X 4", and has about 286 days with entries. It is in fair condition, some pages are dry and brittle, and there are a few small holes and tears, but nothing that interferes with the writing, which is written mostly in pencil, and legible.
