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 [â€¦]. Whole paragraphs found to be illegible have been noted in the following manner: [P] Nov 16th Friday night after a week of hard study. Have commenced Logic and like it. Recitation at three. Our Latin is now at one. It is rather more convenient. That paper is yet on my mind. I am sitting up to night to write for it. Since I have to write it myself I must go at it.
The young lady who is to room with me came today so I have got to get settled upstairs with all the rest but best of all I got my box from home. They sent me more than I deserved. May I be worthy of their kindness and may a watchful Fatherâ€™s care keep them safe. In my studies.
17th Read a composition, wrote home, went downtown, cleaned upstairs, got fixed around so that we took supper then sewed, mended and studied till twelve.
[?] McConil is a pleasant girl think I shall like her much.
