The Diary of Rachel Leech 1846

About this diary:
This is the diary of Rachel Leech, written in her mid forties. Rachel had six children and lived in Urmston. Her diary is written in a much more personal manner than Mr Leech's business-like examples; this is most noted in her use of nicknames. This diary notes the marital difficulties between Rachel and her husband, often calling his mood 'stormy'. These are early hints of a difficult marriage which emerges more notably in Rachel's later diaries. This is the diary of a middle-class wife whose duties revolve around domesticity. This is an ordinary diary from an ordinary woman, but contains extraordinary content. This diary has been transcribed and edited by Nichola Mundy and is 164 pages long.
