110. Carbery, Ellen Carbery, Ellen This poem is but a single example of the work of Ellen Carbery. It is important not only as illustrative of her work, but also of a discontinued practice of having poems printed on card stock, with ornate decoration; particularly poems which commemorated particular events or people. These were given to people who may have had some connection with the event or person. Sometimes they would be for sale. - None of Carbery's original manuscripts are known to have survived. This poem, together with the poems and articles that were published in various newspapers and magazines are all that is known of her life as a writer. There is even less to document her life as a prominent St. John's business woman in the decades just before and after the turn of the 19th century. This poem should be of interest to students of literature of her period. The intrinsic value of the format should not be overlooked. MF-332

114. Cave, William Henry Cave, William Henry Newfoundland election campaigns in the period before Confederation with Canada were highly spirited affairs. Many things were said and printed, both in election hand-outs and in newspaper advertising and editorials, that would probably be considered libellous or slanderous by late twentieth century standards. The items contained in this small collection are relatively tame in comparison to some of the statements made during election campaigns, but they do contain some provocative statements. Such campaign material was an integral part of electioneering and provides insight into the way political campaigning was conducted in Newfoundland in the per-confederate era. MF-321

Chancey, Margaret Mayo Chancey, Margaret Mayo Chancey, Margaret Mayo, 1871-1941; Gower Street Methodist Church (St. John's, N.L.); St. John's (N.L.)--Social life and customs; Diaries This diary was kept by a young woman in her mid-twenties during the year 1897. It contains a brief entry for each day; ordinary events in the life of a young woman living in St. John's as the end of a century approached. She records the weather, what she did each day, shopping expeditions, church services, tea parties, staying at home with her mother. But the physical diary tells as much about the young woman as what she writes. Her literacy and writing ability attest to a good education. On the cover of the diary she has written her name and address. The family home was located at 31 Cookstown Road, a street which was up over the hill from downtown, running north through LeMarchant Road. This diary should prove to be of interest to social historians, students of autobiography and women's studies, and all who are curious about the writings of a young woman in the St. John's of 1897.
