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] [?][?] would we have if the words golden crimson and the like were stricken from our vocabularies and our poets forced instead to describe the apple green heavens. Continued over the leaf.
