My digital restoration of Emily and Anne Bronte's Diary Paper from June 26, 1837 used with permission from the Bronte Parsonage Museum Monday evening June 26th 1837 A bit past 4 o'clock Charlotte working in Aunt's room, Branwell reading Eugene Aram to herâ€“Anne and I writing in the drawing-roomâ€“Anne a poem beginning "Fair was the evening and brightly the sun"â€“I Augusta Almeda's life 1st V. 1-4th page from the lastâ€“fine rather coolish thin grey cloudy but sunny day Aunt working in the little room the old nursery Papa gone out Tabby in the kitchenâ€“the Emperors and Empresses of Gondal and Gaaldine preparing to depart from Gaaldine to Gondal to prepare for the coronation which will be on the 12th July Queen Vittoria ascended the throne this month. Northangerland in Monkey's Isleâ€“Zamora at Eversham. All tight and right in which condition it is hoped we shall all be this day 4 years at which time Charlotte will be 25 and 2 months Branwell just 24 it being his birthdayâ€“myself 22 and 10 months and a piece Anne 21 and nearly a half I wonder where we shall be and how we shall be and what kind of a day it will be thenâ€“let us hope for the best Emily Jane BrontÃ«â€“Anne BrontÃ« I guess that this day 4 years we shall all be in this drawing-room comfortable I hope it may be so. Anne guesses we shall all be gone somewhere comfortable We hope it may be so indeed. Aunt: Come Emily it's past 4 o'clock Emily: Yes, Aunt Exit Aunt Ann: Well, do you intend to write in the evening Emily: Well, what think you (We agreed to go out 1st to make sure if we got into the humour. We may stay inâ€“)
What we do and how we do it.
