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 29. A cold windy day. I have been at home making shoes and looking like a fright.
This afternoon, Mr. Mathews called to see about getting a teacher for the District over by the ______ schoolhouse. I saw that Father and Mother would not say anything about it but wanted me to decide it for myself, so I told him I would let him know this week. But I saw they do not want me to teach so I shall not.
That is they do not want me to teach unless I could get the school in B in which case they think it would pay.
