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] 26th Friday again and if ever a day was wellcome [sic] it is this. I haven’t had a decent lesson this week.
We have a large washing but got it done after a fashion so to go to the society exhibition to night. I was going with Lydia and [?] Alney in high glee when at supper I received an invitation from Mr Hill.
Confound the fellows they are like the darky’s moon always shines as in the light night when we don’t want them. It was very good but our Lyceum at home would beat them all to fits. Lydia and I have been learning our recitations and gassing till it is late.
