This is a religious and personal handbook that was to help with the problems of everyday life. It was to be used and read on a daily basis and as comfort to the troubled, sick, and dying. Susanna Oberholtzer was part of a Mennonite community in East Earl Township, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. Her bookplate is beautiful and can be detached and framed as a piece of art. 

She has marked several pages with little bits of cloth presumably so she could refer to them on a daily or weekly basis. There is also a page from a calendar with the date 'Sunday, October 3rd' on it. Was it an important Sunday or just that she needed a bookmark for that page.

It is 7" x 5" x 2.75" thick
