On offer is an interesting, original 1917 manuscript diary handwritten by 48 year old Hallie M. Stanley of Minerva Ohio in Stark County. Hallie is a very dedicated diarist leaving little to the imagination of life in World War I era Ohio as she fills the little 3 x 5 inch book daily. Here are some snippets: 1917 "January 15th, John and Dode married 22 years tonight. May and I went out to Hallie's and stayed all day. First time I saw the baby and here is a darling 5 week old. We go home at 5:30. We all crocheted and worked this evening. Hester made fudge. She got a raise today of $20.00. Gets $60.00 a month now. Aunt Mille, Ella, John and Dode at teachers and officers banquet at church parlor tonight." "February 28th, I baked cookies. Aunt Millie cleaned up some drawers from the clothes room. I pressed silk dress skirt. Annie Moorehead here to work out lining. Mary Beckman here awhile. Mrs. Haines better. I took her meat and cookies. I went up town. Mrs. Pearce called. Spencer Pease 13 years old today. At teachers meeting and church tonight. Methodist prayer meeting came to our church. Mrs. Ricky had a stroke when George went home from church. Mrs. and Mrs. Pease there all night. Letter from Cannons." "March 16th, Aunt Sade 71 today. I went out on Murray Ave and it was so muddy I came home at noon and stayed home tired all P.M. and Ellen down all day at Sade's quilting. Aunt Sade's children had a big chicken dinner for her birthday this eve and all her children there. Helen Beckwith had a baby shower for her friend tonight and at 2 A.M. took very sick herself and feared she was all in." "March 31st, Nice day. Warm and I worked all forenoon. Ironed some and finished cleaning the clothes room. This P.M. I went to Alexander's to Bertha's funeral. Her body arrived from Colorado this A.M. At 2:30 I went to Penrock's where Vern's baby was buried. Edna Davis was buried this forenoon. Dode and I up town this evening. Thunder shower at 4:30." "April 6th, Alice here. Terrible stormy all day. Snow slush and wind. I went up to grocery at 8 A.M. Aunt Mille baked bread and cookies. Ellen brought mail this P.M. We knit and visited. United States declared war today with Germany." "May 9th, Gas man here all P.M. fitting gas pipes. I sewed at black dress. Head hurt. Ellen did not go to Mr. Chain's funeral at Mt. V. as she intended. I went to teachers meeting and prayer meeting. Carrie Gressurd's husband sentenced to penitentiary today for 1 year or more." Helpful to historians and researchers are many local names mentioned including: Harris, Richardson, Mary Caldwell, Hess Spitzer, Helen Beckwith, Haines, Fletcher, Pease, Mary Beckman, J. A. Wharton, Hook, Guerney, Nellie Hart, Albright, Rev. Keller, Pumphrey, Dr. Temple, Chaddock, Dr. Patterson, Glass, Ethel Clark and more. The book proper is in poor shape having been nibbled at with hardly any loss as the text block is the better part of the book. Overall Fair+.
