Jennie and Mary Templeton Notebook and Other Materials, circa 1876-1880
This collection consists primarily of a notebook that sisters Jennie and Mary Templeton used for their schoolwork at Mary Sharp College in Winchester, Tennessee. It begins with several essays on various philosophies of life and goes on to cover such subjects as Latin, Shakespeare, poetry, composition (including apparently original essays on such subjects as duty, character, and affliction), algebra, trigonometry, geometry, and philosophy. The Templetons also enumerate their expenses for the years of 1878 and 1880. In addition, the collection includes several pages of notes and a letter addressed to "Willie."
