On offer is a superb, original Depression era manuscript diary handwritten by an optimistic, pious down-to-earth Southern California woman who entirely fills a 4-day at a glance diary. Of particular note to historians and researchers of the era, besides the day to day workings of busy family and their struggle to work and live will be the political commentary she writes. Here is a sample: "It is appalling to see how many socialists and communists organizations there are in the US - how many ministers and college men are among them - how radical they are - how atheistic and blasphemous many of them are and how supine our Government is about it - rather how much the administration is doing to encourage communism and socialism. Surely we are close to a revolution - if not a bloody one - a real departure from our form of gov. Only God can save us." Far and away from a 'standard' diary the unidentified author proves to be a charming, erudite All American woman with a keen eye and an awareness of the politics and events occurring in her beloved country during the Depression and pre Word War II United States of America. The 7 1/2" x 5" x 5/8" has some rubbing and chips to the cover but is overall VG.
