description <p>Lilly Palmer Inman spent Monday,<br />29 May 1883, working and looking<br />after her three young daughters. Late<br />that afternoon the 28-year-old farmer's<br />wife on the Hampton shore made the<br />first entry in a black notebook that she<br />had decided to use as a diary:</p><p>Ethel & Annie are sleeping away &<br />Baby is on the floor crowing, it is nearly<br />tea time. Alice Henry & the men are<br />up in the back field putting in potatoes.<br />We were washing this Morning &<br />I am tired. Lucy went home last<br />evening. She was with me most of last<br />week. Came to help me garden but it<br />rained most of the time. Only on<br />Saturday we put in three beds of corn<br />beans & peas. On Sunday we went<br />over home. Lucy & I walked & took<br />baby in the carriage. H. had the children<br />with him in the waggon.</p>
