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] 18th Friday It does seem so good not to have to study. Mother is finishing my dress I have been knitting some.
Geneva is such a lovely place. Thirty five miles from Chicago â€“ mostly dwelling houses and little business. [?] comes home every night. [?] is pretty as she used to be.
