This diary paper was written by Emily Brontë on 26 June 1837. The rough sketch shows two seated female figures, clearly labelled ‘Anne’ and ‘Emily’, at a large table. A number of sheets of paper, labelled ‘The papers’, are scattered over the table and next to Emily’s right elbow is ‘The Tin Box’. This, then, is an illustration of the diary papers and the box in which they were kept.
