Diary of Mary Howard

Reference Code: GBR/0012/MS Add.10413
Scope and Contents

The diary reflects the life of a young girl whose horizons were limited by social and religious constraints. She was eager for self-improvement and created for herself a series of routines and good intentions, which are inserted into the end of the diary. In the daily entries she often refers to these programmes by a system of capital letters and Roman numerals.
