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] 22 I just about half had my lessons and to night am so sleepy I can’t learn. 23 Today we commenced that Carmen [?] renowned for being so hard and justly. To night Lucy and Liz have gone to a social. I would like to have gone but it would not do to go there when I could not get my lessons. I must try and get something into my head about them. 24 To night I went down to [?] Cohills room and we got out our Latin. I have not my Trigonometry I ought to get it but can’t. Well I don’t suppose I was meant to know anything. Have been looking over scraps that dear little [?] Cobb brought me but have not selected a piece. 25 Just the same old story.
