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] Friday. Rainy & wet. To day have not failed, Loo & Mary Eanes Stella & Alice came up to night and such a train. Then we went over to the [?] society. Had a good time. Stella and Alice stayed till most eleven when Charly came for them. Wrote a letter & went to bed at twelve.
Saturday 9th Today Ladies & gents were to read together & it was calculated just as things usually are here they could not all get into the room and the boys didnâ€™t come so Miller was the only one that read. The Proff is raving about it. The girls compositions were good, I expected to read but did not for lack of time. Went down town & got a letter from home. All well & no school.
Sunday 10th Went to church this morning to sabath [sic] school with Lucy & down to [?] school. Tired. Writing this evening.
