Dear Kathleen,

These pages list and have links to various online collections of women's letters, diaries etc. from the 19th century and earlier.  Have fun!



If your university subscribes to the Alexander Street Press's database: North American Women's Letters and Diaries, take a look at it.  For information on its contents see: http://www.alexanderstreetpress.com/products/nwld.htm
