Title Monroe-Hawkins Related
Dates of Creation ca. 1863 - June 23, 1892
Scope & Content Susie D. Monroe's spelling papers and Final for Geography in order to enter into North Bennington High School. One spelling paper and two grammer papers. These likely occured around the same time the spelling exam listed as occuring June 23, 1892. The Geography Final has a note written "I note these were finals June 1912 and I entered North Bennington High School that fall." Although this seems somewhat unlikely. Lastly a copy of "The Premium Writing Book" belonging to Miss Jane Andrew - published by Merriam, Moore and Co. Booksellers and Stationers, Troy, New York - J.W. Orr, Engraver, New York. Floral decorated front cover - paper writing exercise book - no back cover. Writing also on the inside of the front cover. Also a note: "Delia Jane Andrew was a teacher before marrying Seth Warner Monroe - It must have been in 1863-65 (born 1843). There is also a loose note in the book. "My mother's 'copy book' (writing). She must have been 'practising' on opposite pages it was after (long after) she was married and I was 6 yrs. old in 1886." Both were likely written by Susan Dyer Monroe Sweet.
