On offer is an interesting handwritten manuscript diary written by an unidentified western New York girl. She is a teacher and student discussing her own studies and that of her 'scholars'. Besides the usual details of rural life for a young woman [crocheting, ironing, and the myriad of other indoor and outdoor chores] this diary engages in a fair bit of local gossip with Sunday Church being the main source: "Daniel Chapel and wife parted yesterday." "They say Charlie Forbes turned May out of doors and she moved home yesterday." Our writer names everyone around her save for Father and Mother but surely local Norwich New York genealogists, historians and collectors will from the many, many clues ascertain our writer's name. Other brief writings note: received invitation to Oswego Normal, practiced with prairie curlers tonight, Reverend Dr. Bull preached, Francis Parkhurst died Feb. 12 1896, Went to Tully. Dinner at Empire House and much, much more. G+.
