 Series — Container: DCPP/AMO/10
Reference Code: GBR/0269/DCPP/AMO/10

Scope and Contents

Includes newspaper cuttings, small prints and map and sketch ('Welcome little stranger'), with, at back: list of books read and to read, letters written and received in 1859 and 1860; list of books read in 1860 at front. Notable entries include: (12 Aug-29 Sept) to Scarborough, Redcar and Richmond, although Annie's back is increasingly painful and she spends much of the break as an invalid [entries following her return to London are brief and sporadic, due to her discomfort preventing her usual excursions]; (6 Apr) death of Catherine (Kate) Webster, wife of Professor William Webster Fisher; (18 Apr) death of Andrew Amos, Downing Professor of the Laws of England; (5 June) description of several weeks spent at their 'country house', Essex Lodge in Upper Norwood; (8 June) reference to her legal gift of £20,000 to give her father financial independence [he had not profited from the large inheritance left to his daughter and, following his death, he did not bequeathe this money back to his daughter or her children]; (5 Apr) wedding of James Amos and Frances Snape [from this point Mr. [William Bennett] Pike begins to be a more regular visitor].
