Seven eggs today : the diaries of Mary Armstrong, 1859 and 1869 by Mary Armstrong( Book )
3 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 3 libraries worldwide
"Mary Armstrong's diaries are a window into the daily life of a middle-class woman in a new and changing land, and a revealing account of life in early Toronto just before and after confederation. Her journals are one of very few published examples of life writing by Canadian women, especially women outside the upper classes, in the decades surrounding the mid-nineteenth century." "Jackson W. Armstrong's introduction examines who Mary was, what her world was like, and how she saw her own place in it; it also explains the origin and history of the diaries. His extensive primary research supports the well-annotated diaries, and gives contextual information on the events, people, and places that Mary mentions." "Seven Eggs Today offers new information and a fresh perspective on mid-Victorian English Canada, and will be welcomed by general readers and scholars interested in colonial life, biography, immigrant experiences, family and local history, or women's studies."--Jacket
