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. May 1. Cold and windy. My Father went down to the village this afternoon. I went with him and called on Clara. She’s better. While I was home Frank Hubbell(?) called. Just my luck to have company if I stir from home. This is the third time I have been from home when he has called. The witchins (?) are it. May 2. Down to church this morning. This afternoon I have been to sabbath school. There was quite a number out for the first and I think it will be pleasant. I am writing in my room or what will be my study room for the summer if I get any time for study.
