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] Friday November second. Very busy this afternoon and this evening went down to the Shorwood exhibition up till twelve but have not my lessons.
November 3rd A meeting of the society this morning. Have been very busy but have not done much after all. Had to iron this evening.
Nov. 4th Went down to church this morning. This afternoon Lydia and I have been over in the cemetery. It is a beautiful place. What a contrast to our neglected one at home. We have all been telling what we would have for supper if we were home.
To hear us talk of our homes you would think them palaces indeed. Heaven protect the loved ones there.
