text, image


This page is incorrectly labeled as number 182 - the correct page number is 181. 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. March 21. This afternoon we were surprised to see Abbe and husband. They stayed to tea. Then I went over to Uncle Franks with them and stayed all night. Uncle Frank is very sick. March 22. This afternoon Mother and I went down to the village. I called on Mrs. Hughes and Verona and I went up into the Academy. What a change in its inmates in one year. Only three of the girls are there Agnes, Bell and Miss ___________ and what is more, the vacant places are not filled at all. Everybody seems glad to see me but I doubt whether they are or not.
