Product description

From Library Journal

The publication of this diary in its entirety is a major event in social history. Elizabeth Sandwith Drinker (1735-1807) was an affluent Quaker Philadelphian who faithfully noted in her diary the daily details of her life over 49 years. This remarkable diary, accurately transcribed and capably annotated, is an unparalleled source for the study of 18th-century American life. Drinker reported and commented on the events of the American Revolution, the activities of the Society of Friends, the growth of Philadelphia, illnesses and their treatments, household chores, the weather, and crime. Above all, as editor Crane notes in her fine introduction, the diary brims with the history of "how people lived and what they did--as it appeared to a contemporary woman." These volumes are a treasure to be mined by all those interested in the history of women, the family, medicine, and 18th-century society.
