Manuscript Cookbooks: Mrs Fannie T. Watson, Smyrna, Delaware - Table of Contents

This manuscript cookbook began as a student's composition book, though it is highly doubtful that its owner was a student at the time the manuscript was started. Many of the early entries are essays of a religious nature; others are political essays, personal thoughts, and diary entries. Mrs. Watson was probably an African-American 1 and a member of a ladies' religious lodge. The earliest date in the book is September 1, 1940 and the last date is October 8, 1940, though it is possible that the book was added to through 1948 (brief entries throughout note Harry Truman's election in 1948). The owner's name is written over the name "Mrs. Reverend M. F.", a name which appears throughout the book in several places.
