Places where whole sentences (or considerable portions thereof) were found to be illegible are noted with a bracketed ellipsis […]. Whole paragraphs found to be illegible have been noted in the following manner: [P] Saturday June First, Last Tuesday I went to Dt. Felt much relieved when that was done, & Wednesday night went down to Mr Posts. The boys seemed glad to see me, though it was only for a moment. Long enough though. And now Saturday, and a busy one too. To night the reading circle met at Mr Sellers, Mary is to stay with me. 2nd Went to church this morning to please Mother.
