3.2: Writings and Notes by Kathrine Sanger Brinley , circa 1895-1964

Writings by Kathrine Sanger Brinley primarily document her daily life, travels, and thoughts on religion. Included are 15 diaries, some very small pocket-sized books, in which she recorded daily events and thoughts. Several of the diaries describe the period she and Daniel Putnam Brinley were living in Paris and Florence. The diary from 1908 also includes color illustrations by Daniel Putnam Brinley. Many of the later diaries contain loose items within the pages, such as postcards and news clippings. Within "A Diary of Private Prayer" Kathrine wrote her daily thoughts on her religious practice. Writings by Kathrine also include several notebooks, primarily from the period the Brinley's were living in Europe; travel notes from Europe written on the back of numerous postcards; travel essays about her travels in Bermuda in 1921; poetry; autobiographical essays; notes on religion; engagement calendars; and miscellanous writings and fragments.
