Some sections of the original diary are illegible, and these are noted in the transcription. A bracketed question mark [?] represents one illegible word. Places where whole sentences (or considerable portions thereof) were found to be illegible are noted with a bracketed ellipsis […]. Whole paragraphs found to be illegible have been noted in the following manner: [P] I often wonder if I shall ever graduate here or anywhere else. I know I learn and fast too, but yet then some things I don’t like.
I don’t think my disposition was ever given me to be molded in a denominational school of any kind but this is no more bigoted perhaps than others. However I am thankful for the opportunity of going to school any where. I can’t say I am much impressed with my class, they are such a mortal homely set.
