(032201) Lee, Lucinda. Journal Of A Young Lady Of Virginia: Lucinda Lee, 1787. Richmond, VA: Robert E. Lee Memorial Assoc, 1976. Hardcover. 12mo. 57 pages. Fine with no DJ. Lucinda Lee Orr is familiar to most historians interested in southern colonial women. The daughter of Thomas Ludwell Lee, a well-to-do Northern Neck planter, and his wife Mary Aylett Lee, her 1787 journal has been available in print since 1871. The journal provides an account of a two- month sojourn to the homes of various relatives, with descriptions of neighborly visits received and returned, novels read and walks taken, and the arrivals and departures of relatives and beaux. Lucinda Lee, an unmarried adolescent with time on her hands, portrayed her life as filled with carefree days and little responsibility. She was not unique. In the second half of the eighteenth century, many Virginia gentry parents allowed daughters in their late teens a time of considerable freedom before they assumed the adult responsibilities of marriage (Orr, Lucinda Lee, Lee Family, Virginia, Social Life)
