Diary and account book belonging to Thomas Hebbes

Diary entries and accounts kept by a student in his last year at Trinity College, Cambridge in a printed diary for 1753 altered to the later date the diary started in February 1755 and continuing on through the beginning of February 1756 when Hebbes left Trinity for Kensington. Hebbes records academic activities: declaiming in Chapel, presenting an epistle to the Master of Trinity Dr Smith, and paying the Moderator's man for huddling before being examined by Mr Howkins, and then by two moderators, and four fathers in the 'theatre'. His accounts record purchases of food, a subscription to Dockrell's Coffee House, and a variety of miscellaneous items: a new wig, repairs to his watch, Christmas boxes, as well as expenses relating to trips to London, Saffron Walden, Royston, Chesterton, and Stourbridge Fair. He records money won and lost at cards and bowls, and money given to the poor. He mentions selling books, makes payments to the Junior Proctor, Beadle, Head Lecturer and Senior Bursar, and buys a bachelor's gown, and wine and port for the 'Batchelor's table' before taking his degree. The diary also appears to have been used for handwriting practice by Ellen Hebbes and possibly other Hebbes children.

Arthur Munby: poems about and postcards to Hannah Cullwick

Twenty-two poems in Arthur Munby's hand, written to and about his wife Hannah Cullwick, with 4 postcards sent to her by Munby, and two newscuttings about their relationship.

There are twenty complete poems and two fragments in Munby's hand, fair copies evidently meant for presentation to Hannah, with a few carrying his emendations. Sixteen of the poems are dated, from 19 August 1882 (Munby's 54th birthday) to Christmas 1900. Poems include "To my Hannah, Christmas 1884"; "A servant-wife", Feb. 1886; "Weerin o Glooves", one of two complete dialect poems, this dated 18 Feb. 1887; "Bonne à toute faire", a poem of 60 stanzas dated 29 Jan. 1888; "Ann Lee", another dialect poem dated 16 Feb. 1888; "De haut en bas", a poem of 51 stanzas dated 27 Feb. 1888; "In our Cottage", a sonnet dated 16 Dec. 1895; "To my Hannah for her 65th Birthday"; "For Hannah, New Year 1901" with a pencilled note that the poem refers to her as Hannah Lee 'cause Cullwick winna rime'; an untitled poem of 160 lines written in ink and in pencil, with each of the 40 stanzas ending 'My Hannah'; an untitled poem in 14 stanzas with 3 stanzas written at the end under the heading 'Left out'; and an untitled sonnet beginning 'Others may scorn thy rough laborious life'.

The four postcards are written in French in Arthur Munby's hand, to "Chérie" and signed "M", and are dated 1886-1890. The first two postcards are addressed to Hannah Munby at Charles Gibbs's in Brearly and G. Gibbs in Wolverhampton, and two from Feb. and Nov. 1890 are to Hannah at Hadley. Munby asks for news, is pleased she likes his gifts, urges her to take care of her health, rejects her protest that she has nothing to write about and asks her to describe her work, and reflects on the difference between a lady and a servant, writing 'mais moi, c'est toujours ma servante que j'aime, et qui est ma femme aussi'.

Accompanied by two newscuttings, one from News of the World, [1910] headed "Poet's Romance. Wife Who Would Not Be a Lady. Rich Man's Visits to Humble Cottage", and another from the Cambridge Daily News 14 Jan. 1950 headed "Trinity's 40-Years-Old Mystery Box" about opening the Munby papers after 40 years.
