Some sections of the original diary are illegible, and these are noted in the transcription. A bracketed question mark [?] represents one illegible word. Places where whole sentences (or considerable portions thereof) were found to be illegible are noted with a bracketed ellipsis [â€¦]. Whole paragraphs found to be illegible have been noted in the following manner: [P] Jan 5th Very busy, doing a little of everything. O how I wish next week and examination over. Lydia wonâ€™t be here next term. Baldwin is going to leave to day they are [?] up now.
He is good hearted for all his roughness.
We shall miss him, for he has been so kind to us. It will be lonely enough with out Lydia.
Sunday the 6th I have just finished my essay for our exhibition but I am not satisfied with it at all.
I am going to ask Mrs Ham to critique it for me.
I have been at church once. Have got to get up at four for I donâ€™t want to study to night. Lucy has gone to church. It is [?] cold & rainy. How I would like to stop in at home to night. Only one week more of study. If I can only go to Chicago all right I will be so glad.
