Elizabeth Barrett Browning

Elizabeth Barrett Browning (6 March 1806 – 29 June 1861) was one of the most prominent poets of the Victorian era. Her poetry was widely popular in both England and the United States during her lifetime. A collection of her last poems was published by her husband, Robert Browning, shortly after her death.

“I commenced dragging on the wheat ground this morning but it commenced raining about 10 o’clock and I quit a little before 11.  Ed Loy & wife and Mrs. Loy’s sister came at 10:39 this morning and spent the day and took the evening train for their home in Michigan.  Is pleasant tonight.”

“We cleaned up some seed wheat this morning and then dragged rest o the day.  Finished dragging for wheat.”

“We cleaned up some seed wheat this morning and I drilled 6 acres today.  The piece north of the gravel road.”
