Welcome to Another Sally’s Diaries Post

     Well, I’m back!! For those of you who are new to my blog site this is the fourth diary installment for my Sally’s Diaries blog. You can find the other three diaries by clicking into their titles on the “BLOG ROLL” on the right hand side of this page. The first one is called “Summer of 1912 Diary Blog” and the second one is called “Edith Vanderbilt’s Diary.” The third is “John’s 1927 Grief Diary”.

     The “Summer of 1912” diary is about two young lovers touring the English country side and is complete with photos they took along the way. It’s located at the very beginning of the Edith Vanderbilt diary blog as I have two diaries on that site. The Edith Vanderbilt diary is from 1887 and represents a fabulous trip taken by the wealthy Vanderbilt family across the United States in the late 1800’s; including Alaska. The trip is actually experienced while riding in their own private train car. I have finished quoting from these two diaries. The third diary is “John’s 1927 Grief Diary” and it’s a very intense diary written by a young man who just lost his wife and child to death. Both died while she was giving birth to their baby girl.  Its heart wrenching to say the least and very deep and emotional and I’m about ½ way through that diary. And now, it’s time to start another adventure……

     This diary was written by a 14 year old girl whose father is a ship captain. She and her sister have decided to sail from GlasgowScotland across the “great pond” on board the steamship Acadia with their father at the helm. It’s an incredible read because our author, Ernestine Hassenstein, is a marvelous writer and so expressive. She makes the reader feel as if they were right there on deck sitting beside Ernestine as she writes in her diary. So grab a cup of coffee, tea, or what ever suits your fancy and enjoy reading about the life of 14 year old Earnestine as she embarks on the adventure of a lifetime…..
