description <p>For many Victorians, keeping<br />a diary was a daily activity<br />that helped them envision<br />their world. Their diaries are<br />for us an entree to that<br />world and to the achieve-<br />ments, but also the limi- <br />tations, of men and<br />women in the 19th century.<br />When the diarist was a physician,<br />we gain an added dimension, that of<br />disease as opposed to health, and of<br />mortality as opposed to survival.</p>
