text, image


This page is incorrectly labeled as number 119 - the correct page number is 118. The following is taken from a transcription of Martha Baldwin’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. November 2. What an awful storm it has been and is. There is a propeller out in sight of here over whose deck floats the flag of distress and the sea is so high no one can go to her. Three scholars today, grand glorious, have been writing home. Told them I had a small school but did not tell the number, for all I know there will be more soon. November 3. O dear, the same old six pins with one scholar more. Hope on, trust on, trust ever.
