Young Bertha Louise Cogswell filled seven volumes of drawing books with pencil and crayon pictures of her life in Cambridge, Mass., including games, parties, holidays, social calls, and travel. She not only drew scenes from her childhood, but also imagined scenes of her future life as a wife and mother.
