Louisiana Woman: Caroline Merrick

As I mentioned in my last post, I have come across a woman by the name of Caroline Merrick in a book I found at the New Orleans Historic Collection.  Since that time, I have gone to the UNO Library and found out they have all of the books there that I found at the HNOC.  One of the books can actually be checked out so I did just that.  The name of the book is Old Times in Dixie Land, A Southern Matron’s Memoirs.  Ms Merrick wrote much about her daily life and feelings in the book.  I must add she writes very well and it is an enjoyable read.

I feel fortunate to have found such a book written by the person herself.  I am making notes as I start reading hoping that I may formulate a topic so as to start an outline soon.  There is also a picture of Ms Merrick in the book and I will try to post it to the blog by next week.

I feel keeping with a schedule may be very helpful toward reaching the goal of the final project.
