Abstract:

Samantha Barrett, of New Hartford, Connecticut, kept several types of journals. Her first is called a Sabbath book; she used it to record the texts used by the minister to prepare his sermons on Sunday, 1815-1825. She also kept a record of special meetings at the church, such as funerals and holidays. Samantha recorded the amounts and types of cloth she wove for friends and neighbors in a second book, 1815-1820. Her final volume is a diary, 1828-1830, in which she recorded the number of skeins she spun, when she was weaving, who visited, helping with haying, and everyday activities. Zeloda's 1804 diary record going to meeting, going to school, knitting, sewing, reading, visiting, and domestic chores. In the later diaries, 1820-1821 and 1830-1831, continue in the same vein, but now her textile chores include hetcheling, spinning, and weaving. Her visiting increased considerably. Finally, she kept a booklet of recipes for such items as cookies, tea cakes and other cakes, pudding, and directions for pickling cucumbers.
