We are very proud to announce that this year The Sisters’ Room is collaborating with the Brontë Parsonage Museum. On the last Friday of each month we will publish special contents curated by the experts of the museum. Let’s have a look at what’s inside the closets, drawers and cupboards at the Parsonage. You will find in this new category some of the objects that belonged to the Brontë family and which are kept in the Brontë Parsonage Museum archives. Enjoy this new article about Emily’s diary paper.
26 June 1837
This diary paper shows Emily and Anne, hard at work on their Gondal saga, seated at the dining room table amidst the usual day-to-day happenings at the Parsonage.
As well as providing glimpses of parsonage life, the diary paper expresses the sisters’ hopes for the future:
…all tight and right in which condition it is to be hoped
we shall all be on this day 4 years…I wonder where we
shall be and how we shall be and what kind of a day it
will be then let us hope for the best
