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] [?] Camp and Flemings. Utica for ever.
