Untranscribed Diary Pages

A number of pages have not been transcribed in this exhibition of the diary, but it is worth noting their content.  For instance, Mary has made notes on her expenditure in the printed cash account section of the diary, preferring to organise her accounts by category rather than by month. The categories she uses are bread, coal and gas, fish and fowl, butcher, grocer, wages, house, fruit and garden and education.  This information would be of interest to historians wanting to understand more about household expenditure.  She also lists out her subscriptions, charitable donations and a dress account.

Mary has also written in some of the daily pages towards the end of the diary (from 25 December onwards).  There is a list of women and amounts paid (presumably these are servants and their wages).

Other notes include a list of Christmas presents, dividends she owned, dates that the boys contracted mumps, leases, insurance, and days when the boys started work, all of which help to build up a more complete picture of her everyday life and means of living.
