text, image


The following is taken from a transcription of Martha Baldwin’s diary (1858-1859). Illegible sections of the original text are noted as follows: ______. A parenthetical question mark (?) follows words in the original text that were not completely legible but were still transcribed. April 10. This morning Buchanan called and Marshal. We went to the cars to see them off (they are going to the lakes) and Mr. Cucheon. For a wonder we did not make geese of ourselves but behaved as well as could be expected. A year ago we went to see Miss Tindall off the morning after our exhibition. I expected to stay till afternoon but, on account of C. Buchis (?) funeral, came home. It seems so strange. I know I shall be lonely but will get used to it. April 11. A dull rainy Sunday spent in reading and writing. April 12. Rainy all day. April 13. Down to B to get a few things. Found Aunt Maria here.
