Southwestern Historical Quarterly
Monthly and other periodicals as well as issuing independent
publications. In her writings she recorded her views on a wide
variety of subjects, ranging from the Millerite sect to women's
clubs. In preserving these observations of an educated and
astute woman on the many activities which engaged her atten-
tion, this study makes a real contribution to the history of the
everyday life of the American people in a period which wit-
nessed great changes and growth.
The "Water Power Documents" include a study made by
Lewis H. Morgan in 1855 of the flour mills and flour manufac-
ture of Rochester, a group of letters regarding utilization of
water power appearing in newspapers from the late 1850's to
the early 1880's, and an article by Dwight Porter, an instructor
at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, on "Power at Roch-
ester," written for the United States census of 1880. These
documents supply a great deal of information on the history of
the source of power which played a large role in the develop-
ment of Rochester.
The volume is well printed and bound and contains a number
of excellent illustrations. Its contents are solid history, of spe-
cial interest to Rochester but also to historians generally.
