The Mary Hardy Diaries

Many thanks to Roy and Lesley Adkins for drawing my attention to the Mary Hardy Diaries.  This Georgian lady wrote a diary for over 36 years - from 1733-1809 - so she was a contemporary of Jane Austen.  Mary's apprentice Henry Raven also kept a journal! Mary lived in Norfolk, but travelled extensively. This looks like an amazing resource for historians.
