Sewing diary of fabric samples from clothing worn by Ann Eliza Cunningham. Cunningham's handwritten notes accompany many samples and indicate variously where the fabric was purchased, who made it into clothing, who wore it, and where it was worn. The notes appear to have been written in retrospect, probably about 1885-90; the fabrics date from 1841 to 1890.
