is remembered for her manuscript book about her own early life, drafted in 1663-72, during her teens and early twenties (sometimes called either a diary or a commonplace-book). Its obvious motive was religious self-examination, and meditations and prayers alternate with narrative and commentary on her courtships and her family relationships. The whole is flavoured with fictional romance.
