On offer is an exceedingly charming, original 1914 - 1915 manuscript diary handwritten by Elizabeth (Lizzie) Nicholls from Orient, Iowa who is a young teen girl coming of age in rural Iowa prior to World War I. She writes from January 1st 1914 through to November 1915 in amazing detail about her daily life, loves, family and friends with gusto using over 160 pages in this Rexall Store flip style notepad often writing densely and on both sides of the page. She is a very emotive girl and she uses her diary to pour out her heart. One achingly beautiful entry has her praying to God for the love of her boyfriend David. She so longs to hear him ask the question: Will you be my wife? She provides for historians and collectors of the era and the area and times in detail which would prove a treasure trove of Iowa genealogy and pre War background as she is so very active sociable girl and a superb diarist. The 6.5" x 4.25" book is VG.
