623 Epps, Alice M. Dearborn Stevens HANDWRITTEN 5-YEAR DIARY KEPT AT FRANCESTOWN, NEW HAMPSHIRE, 1900-1904: Comprising five annual diaries.
1900 Original manuscript Original Cloth Good 
Each of the 365 calendar pages in this "A Line A Day" diary is divided into fifths to accommodate five years of entries. Written in ink in a legible hand, Alice fits 8 to 10 lines of writing into each day over the five-year span. At the end of the book are 10 pages of "memoranda," similarly divided into five sections per page, where the writer details local and family weddings, births, deaths (including children, one of whom died from eating "parlor matches"), family landmarks, etc. On the final leaf and inside the rear cover are handwritten recipes, remedies, and household tips. Laid into the book are a pressed flower, news clips, a hand-drawn blueprint of "The Elms," a two-page account of Baby Franklin's achievements in his first few years of life, &c. Binding worn at spine ends. 7.75" x 5" The diary of Alice M. Dearborn Stevens Epps gives us a close-up-and-personal view of a woman's daily life in small-town New Hampshire at the turn of the 20th century. She includes all the minutiae of daily feminine tasks, the pregnancy/childbirth and baby-rearing practices of the time, daily dealings with (ubiquitous) family members and friends, and short glimpses into the larger world of politics and the arts. There are local doings that punctuate her days--Old Home Week, the Greenfield Fair, Harvest Supper, graduation ceremonies, &c.--in addition to almost daily social calls and frequent extended visits. There are also dramatic happenings, including a catastrophic fire--apparently an act of arson--that claims the writer's barn and part of her house, the disappearance of a neighbor and the resulting search party, &c. We also follow husband Bertram's daily goings and comings--at the sawmill, haying, planting apple trees, selling apples, work at the sap house for maple syrup, buying and selling horses, &c. Alice was a graduate of Wesleyan Academy in Wilbraham, Massachusetts, the first co-ed boarding school in the US. When we meet Alice through her diary, she is a spinster living in Francestown, NH, &c., &c. [This diary, comprising a sort of turn-of-the-century New England soap opera, will be accompanied by 6-1/2 pages of typewritten, single-spaced reading notes,]
