DIARY OF ANNA GREEN WINSLOW A BOSTON SCHOOL GIRL OF 1771
Anna Green Winslow (29 November 1759 – 19 July 1780), a member of the prominent Winslow family of Boston, Massachusetts, United States, was a girl who wrote a series of letters to her mother between 1771 and 1773 that portray the daily life of the gentry in Boston at the first stirrings of the American Revolution. She made copies of the letters into an eight-by-six-and-a-half-inch book in order to improve her penmanship, making the accounts a sort of diary as well.This diary, edited by 19th-century American historian and author Alice Morse Earle, was published in 1894 under the title Diary of Anna Green Winslow, A Boston School Girl of 1771, and has never gone out of print.[6] The diary provides a rare window into the life of an affluent teenage girl in colonial Boston.While making some changes for contemporary readers, Earle kept the original fanciful spelling and capitalization.[
