Philadelphia Quaker Elizabeth Sandwith Drinker (1735-1807) wrote in her diary almost continuously. The extraordinary span and sustained quality of the journal make it a rewarding document for a multitude of historical purposes. Published in its entirety in 1991, the diary is now accessible to a wider audience in this abridged edition, which highlights the four critical phases of Drinker's life cycle: youth and courtship, wifehood and motherhood, middle age in years of crisis, and her roles as Grandmother and Grand Mother.
