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 30. Yesterday was a dull rainy day but this morning was not quite as bad, and I went to the funeral of Mr. ________ little boy with Mr. Trowbridge. A child of promise was taken home to visit evermore. The sixth funeral in this vicinity within the past three weeks. Who next will be called? Who may say? This afternoon to sabbath school and home in the rain. Jane went home. May 31. A bright sun shiny day. The last of another May. Oh where and what will be. Another year has flown. Mother and I were invited to Em’s to meet Mrs. Hill. How queer it seems
