Amy Fenimore diary

Identifier: HC.MC-975-01-025
Scope and Content note This collection consists of the single original, handwritten copy of Amy Fenimore’s diary for the years 1803-1840. Diary entries largely focus on prayers and religious reflection, and many describe Quaker meetings, and births, deaths, and marriages within the Quaker community. Entries during the years 1832-1833 discuss the Quaker separation between Quaker and Hicksite, or as Fenimore refers to it, the separation between “Friends and orthodox.” Illnesses and medical treatments are also described.
Dates: 1803-1840
