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. June 5. This afternoon Gus and I walked down to Mr. Posts where we by special invitation had been invited to spend the afternoon. We had a very pleasant time. Hoyt was very pleasant and we promenaded those old streets in something the same way that we used to. My Father and Cousin will come for us. June 6. Will and I went to church this morning. I suppose I saw Ada for the last time as she goes tomorrow. Eliza, too, was there. To night Will and I went up to the old house. It has passed into other hands again and is unoccupied now.
