Diary kept by an unknown young woman in Massachusetts from 1852-1854. Entries describe domestic and social activities, and often finish with a quotation from scripture. Some mentions of interactions with notable people, including Rowland G. Hazard and his family, suggest that the woman may have been from a prominent family.
