The following is taken from a transcription of Martha Baldwinâ€™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. The rain has been falling in perfect torrents. I have been cross and unpleasant. Would that I had a good temper and was far less fretful. True, I have some things to tax my patience yet how many have I to be thankful for. How many countless blessing are daily showered upon me and how unkind and ungrateful am I for all those favors.
If I could, when mad, control myself, how much trouble I would save.
Would my Mother only give me some care of the wok, let me go on and do as though I did know something, it would be so encouraging for then I should feel that I were of some assistance.
