Scope and Content Note

The collection contains eight diaries of Emily J. Clark. The diaries contain very brief records of the day’s weather, and family activities. In 1870, Emily and her family resided in Tinmouth, Vermont. They appear to have moved to Middletown, Vermont in 1872, but in 1878 they lived in Danby, Vermont. Her writing indicates that people visited frequently, and her family was very busy. Her father made frequent trips to the village, she along with him occasionally, and her mother was an avid seamstress. A few deaths of family and friends are mentioned in her writing. Emily talked much of doing chores and working on her dress. She was a student at the time she wrote in her diaries, however, her age is unknown.
