text, image


This page is incorrectly labeled as number 191 - the correct page number is 190. 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 31. The last day of March. How swiftly time passes. It has been a cold dreary day. I was very busy till about four when I went up to see Gus. She has changed her mind and is going back to Ypsilanti next week to stay a long sixteen weeks. O what will become of me. I shall be entirely alone. I had thought she would be teaching over there and I would get sight of her every week at least. But I must stand it. I staid all night with her and we had a good long talk.
