This page is incorrectly labeled as number 131 - the correct page number is 130. 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. December 1, 2, 3. December was ushered in with snow. December 4. Ada is sick and I have spent the day knitting and taking care of her. December 5. Blow, blow, how the wind blows. Went to church this morning. Oh how I wish I was acquainted or ever could get to be. Today coming from church there was a young lady and her brother chatting and if I had known them how pleasant it would have been to put in a word but no I must go poking along, alone always.
