This page is incorrectly labeled as number 132 - the correct page number is 131. The following is taken from a transcription of Martha Baldwinâ€™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 6. Monday the same round of duties. I have now had 18 in all. Have about 16 now.
December 7. French and school. They say Ada has had the scarlet fever and I am most sick tonight. If I should be sick here what would I do?
I received a letter from Gus, home. Happy and gay they all are there. It makes me almost homesick to think of it. She does not tell what she is studying though I have asked her 3 times. How much pleasure it is to have such a friend as she and what would we do if we were not friends.
