Resumo:

Papers consist of letters, 1898-1923, a personal travel diary, 1904-1905, and one photograph, not dated. The letters, 1898-1923, were written to Helen by Ellen Tucker Emerson and Edith Emerson Forbes. The letters touch upon daily life activities, mutual acquaintances, local community happenings and occasional visits to the Ralph Waldo Emerson house. All letters are very brief in length. The diary, November 15, 1904-February 19, 1905, details Helen's journey to Europe with members of the Emerson family -- Dr. Edward Waldo Emerson, his wife Annie Keyes Emerson and their daughter Ellen. The travel party spent three months in Europe after traveling aboard the SS Zeeland (no information on this journey is included). The diary describes their visits to various cities in Belgium, Switzerland, Germany and Italy, as well as a two-month period in Antibes, France. Here, the Emerson family, accompanied by Helen, rented "Villa Carina" from a French Viscount. The group spent their days touring throughout the Cote D'Azur and visiting people in the vicinity. The contents of the diary are comprised mainly of Helen's observations as a tourist; it is not highly personal in nature but it is sometimes humorous. She describes local scenery, artwork and people and she also provides commentary on social visits. Occasionally, Helen mentions friends and family from Massachusetts. In the January 20, 1905 entry, Helen refers to a letter from William Emerson (son of Edward and Annie Emerson) reporting a deadly muskrat hunting accident in a canoe on the Concord River, in which seventeen year old Sam Hoar shoots Clarence E. Jones, son of Boston Banker R.H. Jones. Helen's references to the Emerson family in the diary focus on describing day-to-day activities with the various family members -- visits to museums and tourist attractions, countryside excursions, shopping, dining, errands and the like. Helen also comments on the Emersons' many good qualities -- kindness, refinement, cultivation, intelligence, breeding and conversational powers. The photograph included with the collection is a copy of an original (n.d. pre-1909) showing Helen Legate, Ellen. T. Emerson and Grace Heard on the Ralph Waldo Emerson family property, by the barn.
